Citrus-squeezer “Citrus”, in thermoplastic resin. For over half a century, and with great consistency, the finnish designer Aarnio has designed brightly coloured objects for the house with rounded, geometric shapes that allude to a kind of “children’s code.” His works, almost all made in plastic, are short, visual tales that combine features both humorous and playful with precise and explicit functional meanings.
The Finnish designer Eero Aarnio (b.1932) is one of the great innovators of modern furniture design. In the 1960s, Eero Aarnio began experimenting with plastics, vivid colors and organic forms, breaking away from traditional design conventions. His now iconic creations include the Ball (1963), the Pastil (1968), and the Bubble (1968) chairs which echo the pop culture and spirit of their time. Many of Aarnio's works are included in the world's most prestigious museums, including Victoria and Albert Museum in London, MoMA in New York and Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein.
