One year after he had designed the Pastil Chair in 1968 Eero Aarnio received the American Industrial Award for this chair. The New York Times wrote about the Ball Chair and Pastil Chair at this time: "the most comfortable forms to hold up the human body", and the Conran's Design Dictionary says "they look like essays in period style, perhaps from Barbarella". It is amazing how comfortable one can sit a in such a shiny, oversized "sweetie" slightly turning and rocking side-, back- and forwards. The material - fibreglass - allows to keep the Pastil Chair outdoors throughout the year. In summer it is big fun to sit in the Pastil Chair floating on water, in winter gliding down a small hill with tremendous speed.

Great art – great ideas – will always endure. The wheel of time will run over many man's work - and push it into oblivion. But things really good will survive the grind of time and enhance our lives whenever and where ever our eyes meet them.
