Eero Saarinen 1957
In his groundbreaking collection of 1957, Eero Saarinen transformed executive seating into a fluid, sculptural form. 70 years on and its enduring design is seen around a dining table as often as in an office. Available with or without armrests, and with polished chrome or wood finish legs. Or also in a swivel desk chair version.

Finish designer Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) graduated from Yale School of Architecture, joining his father’s Ann Arbor practice to become Saarinen and Saarinen. He taught design at the Cranbrook Academy, the birthplace of American modernism, and had a long career designing for Knoll, which produced his iconic Womb and Tulip chairs. His TWA terminal in New York is a landmark mid-century modern building, recently converted to a hotel.
