Monty Python once sung “Finland, Finland, Finland. The country where I want to be. Pony trekking or camping, Or just watching TV, Finland, Finland, Finland, It’s the country for me”. Upon careful analysis we’re almost certain they were referring to a lazy day, watching TV whilst sitting on the Eero Aarnio Pony Chair. Or perhaps we’re just reading too much into it.
Created in 1973, Aarnio created this chair to carry kids to far away imaginary lands. Of his work Aarnio is quoted saying “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.” Made of moulded foam with a tube body, the pony chair is a surprisingly affordable addition to your Nursery. This Finnish classic is available from Adelta.
