About the Designer

Eero Aarnio

Eero Aarnio

Considered as one of the most innovative designers of his generation, Eero Aarnio was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1932. Graduating from the Institute of Industrial Arts in his hometown, Aarnio did not take long to cause shockwaves with his stunning vision of Modernist furniture design.


Inspired by nature and organic shapes, Aarnio’s designs became an essential aspect of 1960s popular culture. The Finn’s chair designs created a unique furniture experience that continues to be celebrated by critics and famous Modern Art Museums to this day. Aarnio managed to capture the psychedelic Pop Art movement of the 1960s and blend it with a cutting edge yet signature style.


Eero Aarnio’s designs have taken on a life of their own and heavily feature on the big screen, especially within science-fiction motion pictures. A crowning glory for the Helsinki-born designer was his awarding of the prestigious American Industrial Design award in 1968.
