Floating Fiberglass Chair

Looking at one of his earlier works, the Pastil Chair, the designer Eero Aarnio noticed that the chair could float, even with one person on it, but it was not very stable on water. He wanted to resolve this issue through a design with three large floats - the result was the Tomato Chair.

The armrest and the backrest in the shape of balls would stabilize the object in the water. The name came from how the chair was viewed from the front: like two large tomatoes.

Tomato Chair Made up of Balls

The round shapes are a recurring theme in Eero Aarnio's work, but none have combined art, geometry, and everyday life as successfully as with the Tomato Chair from 1971. The combination made of fiber glass balls, results in a natural space symmetry that looks like it has been grown. It allows references to the perfect interplay in the microcosm as well as the idea of ​​stars and planets.

Made not only for Sitting

The tomato Chair is not just for sitting. It also enriches any room with its exceptional appearance. From every perspective, the viewer is given a new impression which makes the Tomato Chair by Eero Aarnio grow beyond the status of a designer chair. It is a real piece of art that enriches the quality of everyday life
