Hanging Bubble Chair
Imported from Finland, the whimsical bubble chair was designed in 1968 by Eero Aarnio. Made of clear acrylic and chromed steel, the sphere "swallows sound" to provide a sense of isolation from the world. Sounds lovely to me, but at a price of $2,869 each, I'll have to wait until my ship comes in to acquire this piece of retro-modern luxury, or at least until Ikea comes up with something similar.
