Citrus-squeezer “Citrus”, in thermoplastic resin. For over half a century, and with great consistency, the finnish designer Aarnio has designed brightly coloured objects for the house with rounded, geometric shapes that allude to a kind of “children’s code.” His works, almost all made in plastic, are short, visual tales that combine features both humorous and playful with precise and explicit functional meanings.

- Eero Aarnio
Aarnio was - and still is - one of the pioneers in using plastic in industrial design. Plastic material set the designers free to create every shape and use every color they wanted. This gave birth to objects oscillating between function and fun - but always fascinating ones.
The finnish designer Eero Aarnio, born in 1932, studied from 1954 to 1957 at the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki and started in 1962 with his own office as an interior and industrial designer. Aarnio's designs were an important aspect of 1960s popular culture, and could often be seen as part of sets in period science-fiction films
Because his designs used very simple geometric forms, they were ideal for such productions. Eero Aarnio continues to create new designs, including toys and furniture for children. Eero Aarnio opened his official webshop and first Design Eero Aarnio Showroom, in Helsinki. There you can find Aarnio`s latest design, prototypes and latest news.
