Eero Aarnio is the Finnish designer and innovator responsible for some of the most recognisable and best loved pieces of furniture of the last century. Fuelled by his lifelong enthusiasm for fresh ideas and new ventures, we have brought these iconic designs back to life under a new label, Eero Aarnio Originals.
At the heart of Eero Aarnio Originals is Eero himself. Not just his designs but his family, his home, his life. Through this new brand we are able to recreate these stories in a new universe while remaining true to the philosophy of the man himself. We are not just making furniture: we are sharing the stories behind the designs, issuing an invitation to discover Eero’s world.
Eero has become well known for pioneering the use of plastic and fiberglass in furniture design, and his iconic creations have led to a multitude of imitations. But we are determined to reconnect the designs with their founder, an endlessly innovative, imaginative creator and craftsman.
Eero Aarnio pieces are each characters in their own right, with their own life stories and personalities. They have been designed from a place of love and optimism; shaped by gut feeling, curiosity and imagination.
