description

A red 'Pastil chair', designed by Eero Aarnio in 1967. The year after he received the American Industrial Design Award. The New York Times wrote about the Ball Chair and Pastil Chair at this time: 'the most comfortable forms to hold up the human body'.
To quote Eero Aarnio: 'The Pastil shape can be looked at from many angles, the product shape comes from a small sweetie, pastil, but in this case the idea was, that a lot of empty, cushioned space is sent to the other side of the world inside the Ball Chair. A new round chair would fit in this space, and so the diameter of the Pastil is the same as the opening of the Ball Chair. I made the first prototype out of polystyrene which helped me to verify the measurements, ergonomics and rocking ability.

This 'Pastil' chair is an early edition, made by Adelta in Finland. Its in a good condition for its age, with some scratches. If you look closely to the scratches, you will notice a certain M. and a certain L. eternalised their love in this chair. Love, peace and happiness!
