Eero Aarnio (born 1932 in Helsinki, Finland) is noted for innovative furniture designs such as his plastic and fiberglass chairs.
Aarnio's designs were an important aspect of 1960's popular culture, and could often be seen as part of sets in period science-fiction films.
Because his designs use very simple geometric forms, they are ideal for a variety of contemporary settings.
Eero Aarnio continues to create new designs. Many of Aarnio’s works are included in the world’s most prestigious museums, including Victoria and Albert Museum in London, MoMA in New York and Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein.
The Double Bubble lamp was designed in 2000 by celebrated Finnish contemporary designer Eero Aarnio. It was first presented in 2003 at an exhibition celebrating his career.
Initially created from blown glass, the Double Bubble lamp is now cast in plastic to ensure durability and a uniform color of light.
