The industrial modernist design of the chair provides for a seating experience that is simultaneously encapsulating and transparent at the same time.

Making the Eero Aarnio Ceiling Mount Bubble Chair Icon

Eero Aarnio designed the original Bubble chair in 1968 while residing in Finland. The industrial modernist design of the chair provides for a seating experience that is simultaneously encapsulating and transparent at the same time. The floating feeling is accomplished by suspending the Bubble chair in mid air using the built in Stainless steel frame arch or mounting to the ceiling using the ceiling mount version. Aarnio selected a synthetic upholstery to provide the modern industrial feel he was intending for the chair. Although the bubble chair takes up similar physical space as a standard chair, from a design perspective the transparent chair floating off the ground provides a whimsical feeling of airiness. This precision reproduction of the original uses the same high quality Acrylic shell, premium stainless steel frame and retro futuristic silver upholstery.

Eero Aarnio releases the futuristic bubble chair in 1968. The Shell of the bubble chair itself is made from transparent Acrylic. The chair was released in 2 modernist styles. The Bubble chair on this page is a ceiling mount which comes with an 82" long chain and a second version which features a stand mount design. Both featured synthetic industrial modern silver cushion upholstery. Many years later as the modernist movement grows, the Bubble Chair rises to iconic status. Its striking form represents the freedom of unconventional, unabashed mid century moderist design.
