The Womb chair, designed in 1948, was the result of collaboration with Charles Eames. Saarinen sought to design a chair which would allow several sitting positions. Exquisitely comfy, sleek and stylish, this chair has it all. From its soft, inviting curves to its comfortable cushioning and tubular steel legs, our reproduction is trying to capture all the details from the original faithfully.
This beautiful lounge chair is made of foam over a moulded fiberglass shell, upholstered by high quality cashmere, all the sewing work are 100% hand stitching done by experienced workers, you can see the professional in the details. The base features a solid stainless steel leg with chromed finish.
In combination with the ottoman (included in the price), this chair is perfect for relaxing and enjoy.
Eero Saarinen, born in Finland in 1910 to the internationally famous architect Eliel Saarinen, was one of the 20th century’s great visionaries, both in the fields of architecture and in furniture design. Marrying curves and dynamic forms with a modernist aesthetic, he brought a whole new dimension to architecture that continues to inspire architects today.
Throughout his career in architecture, Saarinen designed furniture, continually seeking to use new and innovative materials, construction technologies and sculpture, all stemming from his design of buildings. His design of molded plywood chairs for the Museum of Modern Art’s Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition laid the groundwork for his future work with Knoll Associates. With many of America’s most famous 20th century buildings to his name, Saarinen signature works include the TWA terminal building at JFK airport New York, the Dulles International Airport in Virginia and the amazing St Louis Gateway Arch, Missouri designed in 1947 but only built in 1963. Some of his famous furniture designs include the Womb chair and the Pedestal series of chairs and tables.
