The Ball Chair in the style of Eero Aarnio
It’s the perfect hiding place for youngsters. Plus it adds a dash of designer chic to their bedroom or playroom. Eero Aarnio’s Ball Chair was designed for fun, designed with imagination and the results were so visually different from any other seating on sale in the 1960’s that his design was an instant hit with the masses.
Aarnio created his famous “room within a room” Ball Chair in 1966 after taking a large ball and simply cutting the seat shape out of it. Sometimes referred to as the Glove Chair, this playful seat brings a cosy and calm atmosphere with it where your child can relax and enter their fantasy dream world free from noise or distraction.
The chair has also featured in Hollywood blockbuster adverts worldwide, including Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in Men In Black 2; Aarnio’s ball chair is a classic in its own right.
The playful Ball Chairs are inspired by Eero Aarnio’s original designs and are admired by adults and children on a global scale.
The Elephant Chair in the style of Charles Eames
Bring the zoo into your own home with these adorable elephant chairs in the style of Charles Eames original design from Vita Interiors.
Charles and Ray Eames first created this design in 1945 for adults, but secretly styled this imaginative elephant chair with children in mind. The high quality plastic is strong enough to be used both as a seat and as a toy by children up to the age of 8; ideal for a playroom or the children’s bedroom.
It is available in a variety of colours (white, blue, green, pink, red and black) and arrives no assembly needed.
Charles Eames classic designs are known around the world as he is arguably one of the most important furniture designers of the 1900s. After marrying fellow designer Ray Kaiser in 1941, the pair went on to experiment with new materials and pioneered the use of plastics reinforced with fibreglass in interior design.
The exquisite elephant chairs are inspired by Charles Eames’ early furniture designs and look stunning in every home.
