This is the very retro Sunball lounge chair, circa 1969.
The spherical lounge chair was designed by Ris and Selldorf against the backdrop of a counterculture movement that gave us Woodstock, the Vietnam war and the concomitant massive protests of the anti-war movement, women’s liberation and sex, drugs and rock and roll.
The sunball was made as an outdoor model for sunbathing and relaxation. It has two movable spherical shells, which can be opened and closed.
