The bubble chair is a chair that was designed by Eero Aarnio in Finland in 1968. It is made of acrylic on steel frame and has leather cushions. The chair is suspended from above, leading to a floating or bubble-like sensation.[citation needed] It is considered[by whom?] an industrial design classic and advanced the usage of plastics in furniture design. The chair is considered modernist or spaceage and is often used to symbolise the 1960s period.
