OVALIO EGG POD CHAIR | Replica
The Ovalia Egg Pod Chair has been around almost as long as the chicken and egg debate, designed in 1968 by Henrik Thor-Larsen. It’s based on the well known Aarnio Ball Chair but distinctly egg shaped, you may recognize it from that scene in Men in Black.
The original design was produced until 1978 and our replica versions are made from the same hollow fiberglass shell, the interior is covered in a weave wool fabric and completed with 2 foam filled cushions. Our Ovalia Egg Pod is suitable for both home and commercial use (though with anything fiberglass due care must be taken) and they look great in pairs or multiples and have a full 360 swivel mechanism making them great as centerpieces in large areas with multiple focal points.
The Egg Pod Chair is very similar to the Eero Aarnio Ball Chair, with a few small yet distinct differences that establish it as a unique design all of its own.
ABOUT “FINLAND THICK” MICROFIBER TWILL
60% Linen, 20% Cotton, 20% Nylon
Microfiber Twill provides perhaps a more refined, tailored appearance than that of a typical coarse twill. It relies on the multi-tone nature of the fabric strands themselves to provide the appearance of depth of texture.
