Eero Arnio

The Egg pod chair was designed by Finnish designer- Eero Aarnio. After starting a solo career in the early 1960s, he was still a young designer who aspired to create a furniture piece he would be remembered for. He had always been thrilled by boats and had acquainted himself with a new invention used in the making of ships- fiberglass. He imagined if he could use fiberglass for furniture. Eero knew that the best form for malleable plastic is a curved material. But he also knew well that a closed ball would withstand anything. He found out that the most practical use for this novel material he was working with was to use it to build a hard, protective exterior. The Aarnios also needed a chair at home, which would be large enough for his family, to sit together in. Even though functionality was always his first aim, Eero Aarnio is not an ordinary designer. He had always loved to provoke emotions and cause a stir with his unique designs.

 

Lee West

The 1970s was an important decade for the egg chair. It was around the same time that the Egg Sound Chair [Alpha Chamber Egg Pod Stereo Chair] was launched.  Lee West redesigned the egg pod chair, and it was rechristened the ‘speaker chair’. This egg pod chair was fitted with speakers and an ottoman. And it quickly gained popularity.

 

Speaker chair vs. Egg pod chair

Let’s talk about the egg pod chair first. It was debuted in 1964, at the World's Fair in Flushing, New York. Its exterior is made from glossy laminate Fiberglass. And the interior fabric is made from cashmere. The egg pod interior has luxurious cushion padding and a bearing swivel system for ease of turning around. The available colors are: black, blue green, and red. And you could also order a custom color, to you taste. All chairs come with a similar white exterior. Finally, it requires no assembly, or technical skills. There is something special about the Egg Chair that reaches out and makes people smile as soon as they see its famous shape. The sleek design that was cutting edge in the 1960s is still modern but with retro appeal. The chair has devoted followers around the world not just because of its timeless design but thanks to the entertainment experience it represents.

Now, the speaker chair… it’s basically an egg pod chair with an ottoman and music equipment. Whether with just the surround sound speakers or with the optional tactile transducer, the listening experience inside the speaker Chair is unlike any other!

Features of the Speaker Chair

A white fiberglass egg pod styled chair with matching ottoman having stereo speakers to each inside panel, fixed on a round base. The interior is upholstered in the original woven black contract fabric throughout with arm rests. These iconic chairs were owned by T.V stars and used in many movies, TV shows and commercials in the 1970's-80's giving that Space Age look and futuristic feel. It was restyled and re-introduced at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show in 2000. The recreated Lee West Alpha Stereo Chair was produced through licensing agreements with Lee West to use their original molds designed in 1968 for the egg pod chair. This second generation stereo chair has the added design feature beyond the original chair of a Clark Synthesis transducer inset into the bottom of the chair. Unlike cheaper sub-woofer inserts - the Clark is a full range audio speaker which adds tremendous depth to the listener’s experience. Lee West Co produced only about a hundred units. You could listen to your favorite CD, watch a movie, or play video games in surround sound like never before. The Speaker Chair comes standard with speakers, which can be connected via speaker wire to your receiver or home entertainment system. If you add a tactile transducer and experience sound vibration and enhanced bass, virtually transforming your speaker chair into a subwoofer. There is also an MP3 package. You could get this, and transform your chair into a high-impact MP3 audio speaker. By simply plugging in your portable device and listen to music the way it was intended to be heard. The chair’s right and left speakers will create the ideal listening dynamic for any audiophile or music lover.

 

Health Benefits

The unconventional shape and construction of the Speaker Chair make it perfect for both sound isolation and excellent acoustics. Its pod-like shape and upholstered interior cancels out most outside noise, providing a unique environment for meditation, relaxation and just getting away from it all. Not only is it perfect for home use, but this dynamic has also made the Speaker Chair a desirable tool in the field of psychology. The chair is not only an extraordinary listening experience for music and home theater applications but also can be used with harmonic and meditative therapies. The harmonic principals behind this chair are the same used in rehabilitation therapy for astronauts to rebuild muscle loss due to long exposure to weightlessness.
