Concept

Pony upholstered foam pony-shaped chair. Children are attrackted by the bright colors and the uncoventional forms of Eero Aarnio's designs and especially the Pony looks like an over-sized toy. But it is not the toy Eero Aarnio has intended to create with the Pony. The dimensions are conformed to adult's size. The Pony shows the play of fantasy which is so characteristic for Eero Aarnio and in a comportable seat it might carry you to unknown fields of your own imagination. Aarnio: ‘A chair is a chair, is a chair, is a chair ... but a seat does not necessarily have to be a chair. It can be anything as it is ergonomically correct. A seat could even be a small and soft Pony on which you can ‚ride' or sit sideways. The Pony has a moulded foam body, feet and ears which are connected by a tube frame and all parts are upholstered with stretch fabric. The colours are white, black, orange and green.’
