All Design Connected 3d models are originally created in 3ds Max 9 and V-Ray renderer. We use in-house developed automation tools to convert our models to support other renderers like Mental Ray, Built-in Scanline, Corona and Maxwell, with MXM and MXS files included.

Files units are centimeters and all models are accurately scaled to represent real-life object's dimensions.

The model comes as a single editable mesh or poly object (or as group for rigged models or where displace modifier has been used) properly named and positioned in the center of coordinate system. No lights, cameras and render/scene setup are included unless otherwise stated in the particular model’s description.

Product description

Brand: Adelta, Germany www.adelta.de Designer: Eero Aarnio Design Connected ID: 3342
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".
Aarnio about Pastil Chair: "The Pastil shape can be looked at from many angles. The initial idea could be the same as in a Screw Table i.e. the product shape comes from a small sweetie, pastil, but in this case the idea was, that a lot of empty, cushioned space is sent to the other side of the world inside the Ball Chair. A new round chair would fit in this space, and so the diameter of the Pastil is the same as the opening of the Ball Chair. I made the first prototype out of polystyrene which helped me to verify the measurements, ergonomics and rocking ability.Because fibreglass is always laminated by hand on a smooth mould the visible surface is perfectly shiny but the other surface slightly rough. I have always wanted to cover or to hide this side of my fibreglass products. In the Pastil it is ideally on the inside and thus totally invisible."
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.

Year of design: 1967
