Eero Saarinen, the Finnish-American architect and industrial designer has left us an indelible print in the world of design. Proof of its success, its seats, true icons like the Tulip chair, are anchored in the collective memory.
In 1940, he won an award alongside Charles Eames for the design of a seat, at the “Organic Design in Home Furnishings”, organized by MoMA in New York. Comfortable and equipped with a plywood reinforced foam shell, their Womb Chair was produced from 1948, at Florence Knoll’s request for ‘a chair that was like a basket full of pillows – something she could really curl up in.’
The chair is anchored in the movement of the second generation of modernists, of which Saarinen becomes one of the leaders.
