Eero Aarnio Pastilli chair – a 1960s classic

Pastilli

Just launched online is Design Eero Aarnio – an online shop devoted to the work and designs of legendary Finnish designer Eero Aarnio. Take your pick of everything from chairs, tables and lamps through to clothing, textiles and smaller items such as postcards, bookmarks and door handles. Essentially, if he’s made it and it is still in production somewhere, it’s here.

And that includes the classic Pastilli chair. Designed in 1967 and screaming the era, it was intended as a comfortable and space-saving piece of seating – or rather, a chair that would fit into that awkward space in a room.

Still made to order and in a number of colour choices (orange being the obvious choice for the period look), the fibreglass chair retails for 1,500 Euros, which is around £1,000.
