Rein ins Ufo!

Den gebauten Zukunftsoptimismus der 1970er Jahre kann man derzeit in der Ausstellung "Utopie Plastic" in den Friche de l’Escalette bei Marseille begehen.
Children are attracted by the bright colors and the uncoventional forms of Eero Aarnio's designs. And especially the Pony looks like an overdimensional toy. But it is not the toy Eero Aarnio has intended to create with the Pony. The dimensions are con
formed to adult's size. The Pony shows the play of phantasy which is so characteristic for Eero Aarnio, and in a comfortable 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."
