Pony by Eero Aarnio 1973
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 conformed 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."
