Description

One of the most celebrated, prolific, and unorthodox architects and designers of the twentieth century, Eero Saarinen has become a beacon of American modernism. While famous for his sculptural and bold architecture, such as the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri and the TWA Terminal at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Eero Saarinen: Furniture for Everyman is the first monograph to focus exclusively on his furniture designs. Saarinen designed for the furniture company Knoll, and these collections, like his architecture, are characterized by sleek and expressive forms. Within the pages of this book are hundreds of rare and never-before-seen archival photographs of Saarinen, his friends and family, as well as advertisements, patent drawings and design sketches. Published by Pointed Leaf Press, September 2012. Includes a preface by Florence Knoll and an essay by Saarinen’s protégé Niels Diffrient. Author Brian Lutz is a former employee of Knoll, the company that has been producing authentic Eero Saarinen furniture since the mid-20th century.
