Description

The design of Saarinen’s Executive Collection (1946) began in the mid-1930s when he and Charles Eames submitted several designs to the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at MoMA. The pair, who’d been friends and collaborators since meeting at Cranbrook Academy of Art, won first prize for a fluid, sculptural chair that influenced the future works by both men. For Saarinen, those early ideas evolved into a shape that completely transformed the idea of executive seating and was also quickly recognized as an elegant, comfortable choice for the dining room, where it’s just as likely to be found today.
