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.
Knoll products are defined by a distinct modern sensibility. From classics by the likes of Mies van der Rohe to ground-breaking designs by contemporary creatives including Marc Newson, David Adjaye, Barber Osgerby and Rem Koolhaas.
