Very sixties... 8)
Yep. a 60's space-age design icon from '67. It's made from fiberglass and without any padding, it's very comfortable. Eero Aarnio was a genius designer. When we renovated in 2002 I told the architect that I must have either a Pastil or a Bubble Chair in the living room. He laughed. I went out and bought one. By the way, it can float in a pool (not that we have one).

A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

I've heard you can float in the Dead Sea too, not that I've got one of those either... :mrgreen:

Original or repro...? Rather cool items... I know my daughter would like one of the bubbles... ;)
Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

I tried the dead sea thing, it's like floating in a disgusting warm, oily soup. Once was enough.

The Pastil is a $300 repro. A very accurate one. If I had enough money to buy an original I'd still buy the repro and use the leftover $2,300 to buy another bass or two.
