A Womb Chair fit for two. Reintroduced in 2015, the design has been out of production, but never out of style. The double-wide design is the perfect modern refuge for the living room, bedroom or office. This two-seat settee was originally designed by Eero Saarinen in 1948 for his first big architectural commission, the General Motors Technical Center in Michigan.
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.
