Eero Aarnio’s Ball Chair has been turning heads since 1962 – a design so forward-looking that it’s been pointless trying to update it. Until now – with the introduction of the Sonic Chair.

The Sonic Chair is the Ball Chair with sound. It has input jacks so you can wire up your portable (or fixed) player of choice, playing music through the satellite speakers placed all over the inside of the structure (even in the seat and backrest). And once you’re inside listening to your music, the structure acts as acoustic insulation, protecting you from outside sounds and background noise.

Available in a range of colours (including some nice retro schemes), all with the chrome base, the Sonic Chair has been doing the rounds at furniture and design fairs, with an eye for the stores this year. No price as yet, if you want to know more, contact the people at Sonic Chair.
