This piece was originally conceived in early 1989 with the finished product launching on December 13, 1989. While it showed promise early on, it wasn't until years later that it became a world wide phenomenon.

Now about the chair. The Finnish interior designer Eero Aarnio designed the Ball Chair in 1963 and the Bubble Chairin 1968. The Ball Chair sits on a base while the Bubble Chair hangs from the ceiling. It has since become one of the iconic pieces of industrial design from the 60's. This chair was designed to be a "room within a room". The shape of the chair allows outside noises to be blocked from the user.
