Puppy abstract plastic dog
Published on January 30, 2017
Anybody familiar with the designs of Eero Aarnio will instantly realize that his creation, The Puppy, is 100% classic Aarnio. Puppy is a sculpture, a toy, a small stool, whatever your imagination wants it to be. The puppy is part of the “me too collection” of children’s furniture and accessories from Magis, 2005.
Material: Rotational-moulded polyethylene or polycarbonate
This abstract plastic dog is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. A creative piece to do away with the barriers between toys and furniture.
The Finnish designer Eero Aarnio (born in 1932 in Helsinki) is one of the greatest innovators of modern furniture design.
From 1954 to 1957 he attended the School of Applied Arts in Helsinki, and in 1956 he married Pirkko Attila, with whom he had two daughters.
His work as a designer began in the early 60s, when he opened his own design studio in Helsinki.
Eero Aarnio began experimenting with plastics, vivid colors and organic forms, breaking away from traditional design conventions.
His now iconic plastic creations include the chairs Ball (1963), the Pastil (1968), and the Bubble (1968), as well as the abstract dog Puppy he designed in 2004 for the Magis collection Me Too.
