Professor Eero Aarnio (1932) is one of the major innovators of modern furniture design. He started by experimenting with plastic, bright colours and organic shapes, breaking away from the constraints of traditional design. Many of his iconic pieces are on display at the most highly-regarded museums in the world, such as the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, MoMA in New York, and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein.
“I am the master of my own design.”
“Keep dreaming, and carry out your dreams.”
“A designer must always be an artist but an artist does not have to be a designer.”
