Saarinen Executive Armless Chair by Knoll designed by Eero Saarinen
Introduced in 1957, the Saarinen Executive Chair hurled chair design decades forward, making the chairs fluid, sculptural forms. The Saarinen Executive Chair was one of the first chairs to make the comfort of the user its first priority. To accomplish that goal, the Saarinen Executive Conference Chair became the first chair shell to be made from fiberglass, a material easy to bend and easy to contour to the human form. The Saarinen Executive Conference Chairs are available in a wide variety of forms and functions. Swiveling chairs, differently upholstered, armless, etc. Saarinen broke sculptural and philosophical ground when he created the Saarinen Executive Conference Chair, and now you can be the owner of one of the finest chairs ever built. The Saarinen Executive Conference Chair is right for offices, libraries, cafes, and more.
Knoll was well known for utilizing European talent, and many items in their furniture collection were designed by Scandinavians. Eero Saarinen, originally from Finland, would become one of the most renowned designers of the mid-twentieth century. After studying architecture at Yale, Saarinen collaborated with contemporary Charles Eames and designed numerous furniture classics and buildings that would help define American style and aesthetics. Saarinen's most famous works in the Knoll collection are the Womb Chair and Tulip Chair, but he also designed a series of dining and side tables as well as office-oriented chairs. His architectural achievements include the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and the Dulles Airport in Washington DC.
