Tomato Chair

Product description

Aarnio about Tomato Chair: "A product idea can come about in many different ways and here is one of them. I realized that Pastil Chair floats and carries the person who sits in it in water but it is very rickety. If there were three items like two gr

eat armrests and the back of the chair would be stable, and this is how the idea of the TOMATO Chair was born. The name reflects its looks: looking at the chair from the front there are two round shapes i.e. two circles like in the word tOmatO." The

Tomato Chair visualizes how Aarnio plays with round shapes. At the first sight the Tomato Chair looks complicated, but the second look shows an intelligent combination of 3 circles with same diameter, two of them being armrests, one stretched to a comfor

table back, and even a fourth half circle up side down giving the chair a consequent seat. When looking at the Tomato Chair from different angles it is more than a chair, it is a sculpture.
