Design Lover Ris and Selldorf Sunball for Rosenthal

From within your plushly padded shell, you navigate the "sunball" to mirror the orbit of the sun. With the aid of Teflon bearings, you direct its roof to slide open, the ball to swivel on its base in near galactic silence. Accessorize with serving tray and stereo...and a light for night flights by the pool, patio or terrace. Mission done, you lock the sunball for total security. Designed by Gunter Ris and Herbert Selldorf for Rosenthal. From AD, 1977.
