Concept

The idea for a chair to be used as a conference and side chair in the same spirit as his big fibreglass seats has been for years in Eero Aarnio’s mind. A lot of drawings have been made, a lot of different materials have been tried, but none of them really satisfied at the same time the artificial and technical needs of the designer.
Aarnio: ''When I begin to design brand new idea I must have the feeling, that everything is possible, and it will be if I have a good professional background. As a designer I am artist, a sculptor, but in my field it is impossible to be an artist without being also technician.''
The Focus Chair has metal frame construction, which is completely covered by foam and upholstered with Tonus 2000 fabric available in big scale of colors. Ergonomic design and comfortable seating are as natural for Aarnio as the outstanding shape.
