Eero Aarnio studied at the Institute of Industrial Arts, Helsinki. He started working with plastics in 1960, opened his own design office in 1962 and created two of the most famous chairs of the decade, the 'Ball' or 'Globe' chair and the 'Pastilli' or 'Gyro' chair for which he was awarded an A.I.D. Aarnio has now returned to traditional materials like wood.
