Say hello to Eero

Staple of bachelor pads and 1970s movies, the Ball Chair is the creation of Eerio Aarnio.

Now in his 80s Aarnio is still working from his studio a half hour out of Helsinki.

Many of his designs are currently on display at the Helsinki Design Museum.

I'd love to go. But obviously that ain't gonna happen.

So I've had to settle for this terrific online piece on Aarnio. It's well worth 10 mins of your time.
