It's exterior; Molded fiberglass shell and matching fiberglass base with an integrated swivel mechanism.

The Ball Chair - or Globe Chair as it's called sometimes - was designed by using one of the most simple geometric forms - the ball. Cutting of a part and fixing it at one point Eero Aarnio comes to a remarkable result - a completely unconventional shaped chair.

A Ball Chair is a "room within a room" with a cozy and calm athmosphere, protecting outside noises and giving a private space for relaxing or having a phonecall. Turning around its own axis on the base the view to the outer space is variable for the user and thus he is not completely excluded from world outside.

The Vitra Design Museum notes in his brochure on the Ball Chair miniature: "It is something between a piece of furniture and a piece of architecture and at the same time embodies both the mobile and the established, the fixed." - You'll find this miniature at the Vitra Design Museum's Shop.

  1. The Best Chair Ever Review by Rick Parker
    Quality

    I have this chair, and I have to say it is great. While the other reviewer is technically correct, this is not a "real" Eero Aarnio ball chair, it also doesn't claim to be. A real Eero Aarnio ball chair costs THOUSANDS of dollars and are essentially museum pieces. This is an affordable replica of the same style, and the quality is such that you aren't really going to be able to tell the difference. If you want a real Eero Aarnio chair, and you have $4000-$6000 lying around, then all means buy one. But if you want something that is the exact same style, basically the exact same thing but at a more reasonable price, then this is perfect. Plus, Lexington Modern offers free shipping, and believe me you are going to need/want that because this thing is heavy and it is HUGE. Make sure you have a wide enough door to get it through. A 32" doorway should be adequate, but not with it fully packed due to the wooden frame the box ships in to protect it. I had trouble getting it through my door, but that was due to the box and not the chair.

    If you want to read a really helpful review and get some good information about this chair that isn't someone just complaining that it isn't a several thousand dollar original from 1963, then do what I did and check this site out. (no external links in reviews so it is in my profile) that is the best information I have been able to find about one of these chairs and specifically the Lexington Modern offering.

    The only negatives I can give this is that there are times I wish the cushions were a little cushier, but that is a very minor complaint. The other thing is Lexington Modern also sells an Eero Aarnio Alpha Egg Chair replica, and they include a matching ottoman with it. Now the ottoman is the same, plastic shell and the fabric matches both the Alpha Egg Chair and the Ball Chair fabric offerings, but it doesn't look like you chan purchase it separately. I spend a lot of time in my ball chair (writing this from it now) and I really wish I had a matching ottoman to go with it. (Posted on 5/14/2012)
