The Ball Chair was designed by using one of the most simple geometric forms: the ball. By lopping off one end and fixing it at one point Eero Aarnio comes to a remarkable result – a supremely unconventional chair.

A Ball Chair is a ‘room within a room’ with a cozy and calm atmosphere, protected from outside noises it provides a private space for relaxing or a phone call. Spinning on its own axis the view to the outer world is variable for the user and offers a degree of privacy. The ball chair is something between a piece of furniture and a piece of architecture and at the same time embodies both the mobile and the established.

Designing often necessitates considering the aesthetic, functional, economic and sociopolitical dimensions of both the design object and design process. It may involve considerable research, thought, modeling, interactive adjustment, and re-design.
