Eero Aarnio

The egg pod chair was designed by a Finnish designer- Eero Aarnio. After starting a solo career in the beginning of the 1960s, he was still an obscure designer who aspired to create a furniture piece he would be remembered for. He had always been thrilled by boats and had familiarized himself with a new invention used in the shipping industry- fiberglass. He imagined if he could use this material for furniture. Eero knew that the best form for malleable plastic is a curve. But a closed ball would withstand anything. He found the most practical use for this novel material he was working with. The Aarnios also needed a chair at home, which would be large enough for all four of the family [him and his wife Pirkko, and their two daughters], to sit together in. Even though functionality was always his first aim, Eero Aarnio is no ordinary designer. He said to his wife: “I will make a chair that when it is put in a shop window, no one will just walk past it.” He had always loved to provoke emotions and cause a stir with his designs.

 

The egg pod chair vs ball chair

The egg pod chair is not to be confused with the ball chair [read here]. Though both are creations of Eero Aarnio and share a number of similarities. The differences come in when you look at their respective shapes. The ball chair is a sphere, while the egg pod chair is egg-like [oval] and has more head room and space. The ball chair was created before the egg pod chair. So, the latter draws a number of ideas from it. The exterior of the chair was designed in the shape of an egg shell whose front has been carved out to deliver a nest-like space. It’s like a room in a room – your very own ‘pod‘ – and protects the user from outside interference (mostly noise) while providing a relaxing place to sit down and do your thing. Its privacy is one of its most amazing qualities.

Cleaning and maintaining it

There are principally two ways to take care of ball chair. First, you could just use your vacuum to remove any dust that has settled on the ball chair's face. Second, you can wash it with water and cleaner. Eero Aarnio ball chair is made from polyurethane and thus it's veritably easy to clean. Still, drop it with warm soapy water; or you could also use non-abrasive dishwashing liquid mixed with lukewarm water, if the ball chair has been exposed to some dirt and needs drawing further completely. Wash off using cold tap water, and allow to drip dry.

 

What to consider before you buy one

Nearly 50 years after, the egg pod chair remains an icon of its own. Although its design is readily appreciated, there are a few things you should consider before you buy one:

Size: The size of the Egg Pod chair is not exactly suited for small spaces. So, it’s always recommended to consider the size of your space before you make the final purchase.

Aesthetic: Another thing that you should consider before buying the Egg Pod chair is if it matches your overall home ambience. You cannot put something so futuristic in a classic or vintage theme. So, make sure that your room is capable of highlighting and complementing its character before you buy it.

Arne Jacobsen egg chair

Its defining characteristic comes in the form of sides that curve upwards. But, that’s just the least obvious detail. A lot of contemporary chairs have rotating, swiveling, and tilting functions, which are amazing features. Similarly, egg chairs have stable platforms with hydraulic levers for controlling height. They look like typical office chairs and can fill that role quite nicely. Their back support is exceptional, enabling you to relax while working. The base of the chair is a flat stand for stability and a swivel for a 360 scope of vision. Arne’s egg chair as a whole creates a visual sensation that reaches out and draws you into comfort and relief. The Egg Chair was inspired by an earlier piece of furniture also created by Arne, the Swan chair.
