Iconic Ball Chairs Introduced
"In Oberlin History" is a series dedicated to notable events in Oberlin College history. It is created in partnership with the Office of Communications and Oberlin College Archives.
Just 45 years ago, the iconic ball chairs first appeared on campus. Part of the Terrell Main Library’s original 1974 furnishings, the colorful chairs were created by Finnish interior designer Eero Aarnio and have served as a welcome spot for both studying and dozing off.
