In the modern world people are beginning to express themselves through all activities of life. Most people feel that they must exhibit their sophistication through their choice of furniture. Designed in 1968 by a Finnish designer called Eero Aarnio the acrylic bubble chair is made of clear acrylic in the shape of a bubble which is then suspended from ceiling. Aarnio is widely recognised as a modeller who introduced plastics in furniture design and created an iconic mood by using the futuristic elements from the past eras.

Aarnio was fascinated by the relationship of man with his outer environment and he finally introduced a sheer acrylic bubble that is supported by a steel ring and suspended form the ceiling by a chain. Thus the bubble chair totally reverses the idea of chair by traditional design. Since the chair is suspended it gives a weird unearthly feeling to the person sitting in it. The acoustics inside the chair Is very good and these chairs are normally found in large places like libraries.

These lightweight bubbles are very resistant to weather, so a cluster of bubbles would be an exciting addition to your porch or patio as well. It has been like a phenomenon that hits the furniture world with the arrival of this unique design.
