|The Prisoner in a Ball Chair|
The iconic "Ball Chair" design, or "room within a room," which debuted at the Cologne Furniture Fair in 1966, featured a black interior that has now been rendered in bold red.
Finnish designer Eero Aarnio developed this piece because he wanted a chair that was large enough to accommodate both him and his wife Pirkko.
Experimenting with what was then a new innovation -- fiberglass -- Aarnio decided that a sphere was the right shape for the strong yet malleable material.
