Flashback: The Eero Aarnio Ball Chair is Still Hot

— December 23, 2006 — Art & Design
It's hard to say this chair is anything new or "cutting edge" given it was around since the 60's, but no trend portfolio would be complete without having one of these on the list. Sure, it's over 4grand US and probably pretty hard to get in and out of if you're a lil on the porky side, but it just looks awesome. You can however get some imitation models of this baby, even in egg shapes and speakers built in etc, but for a Trend Hunter magazine, it's best to pay homage to the original.
