Design by Eero Aarnio, 2009.
Made in Finland.
Drawing inspiration from his iconic Bubble Chair (1968), Eero Aarnio's Ring Chair takes the protective transparency of Bubble one step further by removing the enclosure entirely. A broad circular swath of tubular chromed metal encircles the spacious and comfortable seat upholstered in luxurious black Kvadrat wool fabric. A ball shaped armrest recalls Aarnio's recent Keinu rocking chair.
The Ring Chair has architectural, sculptural and functional appeal and, like Aarnio's iconic Bubble Chair, the Ring Chair is suspended from the ceiling with a classic metal chain.

Adelta is the worldwide distributor of original Eero Aarnio fiberglass designs. These designs are produced exclusively by the same factory in Finland since the 1960s using the original molds. Additional new designs have been created by Eero Aarnio to complete the Adelta Eero Aarnio Furniture Edition.
Eero Aarnio was — and still is — a pioneer in using plastic in industrial design. Plastic material set designers free to create every shape and use every color they wanted. This gave birth to objects oscillating between function and fun — but always fascinating ones. Adelta has an exclusive agreement with Mr. Aarnio for the distribution of these designs.View other products from Adelta
