Identical with Original

I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

The quality is amazing, it was ready after 6 weeks (not 6 months!). Really happy with the chair.

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

People who pay the original price, must feel stupid. There is no difference, and the quality is really amazing at 122 Design

High quality

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

Amazing

Great support!

Dorothy on May 09, 2016

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

Same as original, just cheaper

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

Eero Aarnio

Eero Aarnio

There are no products in this collection.

The innovative Finnish designer, Eero Aarnio was born in Helsinki on July 21st, 1932. He graduated in 1953 and began studying industrial design for the next three years. During the early years of his career, Eero worked as an interior designer, photographer and a general industrial and graphic designer before he began designing furniture. After spending two years at the Finnish design company Asko, he began working as a freelancer in 1962.

 

From traditional to Experimental Materials

Aarnio’s early works were designed with traditional materials in mind, including his first chair Juttu, which he made from wicker.

In the first half of the 1960s, Aarnio switched his focus to plastic as a basic material for his furniture designs. When discussing this change, Eero often said how he was beginning to get bored at the thought of designing yet another fruit bowl or bread basket, and he felt like doing something completely different. As a rather new material, especially in furniture design, plastic gave him the opportunity for innovation and the usage of bright and vivid colours in his designs.

Like Verner Panton and Charles Eames, Eero Aarnio contributed to the recognition of usage of plastic in designing functional and mundane, but also stylish and aesthetic furniture.

Eero Aarnio's Chair Design

Aarnio’s first successful design that earned him the reputation of an innovative furniture designer was his Ball Chair, also known as the Globe Chair (Hvilestolen in Danish). Famous for its unconventional shape, this iconic designer chair is considered a classic of industrial design. By experimenting with different shapes and playing with the ideas of simplicity and minimalism, Eero Aarnio created the chair in the shape of a hollow sphere on a stand, open on one side to allow a person to sit within.

The Globe Chair was followed by a number of innovative designer chairs, such as Pony, Tomato Chair and Bubble chair.

While modern looking designer chairs made in simple geometric shapes and from materials like plastic or fiberglass certainly are what Eero Aarnio is most famous for, his work is known for diversity and innovation in different fields, including lighting, toy design, furniture for children and also a mobile sauna which he designed in collaboration with Matti Halme and Ritva Puotila for the Milan Triennial exhibition in 1968.
