Also referred to as Hanging Bubble Chair, or Hanging Ball Chair, it has become an iconic masterpiece. The transparent Ball Chair creates a room within a room. The Bubble swallows the sound and you feel isolated inside in a pleasant way. Sit inside, it creates your own world without the noise and distractions of the outside world.
