Details

The expressive sculptural forms of the Eero Saarinen Womb Chair (1946) can also be found in his architecture, from the TWA Terminal (now the TWA Hotel) at New York's JFK Airport to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. In 1940, the Finnish American and his friend Charles Eames took first prize at the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at MoMA. Later that decade, Florence Knoll challenged Saarinen to create a chair that she could curl up in, which led to this iconic design. The Knoll Womb Chair has an enveloping form that continues to be one of the most celebrated and recognized representations of midcentury organic modernism. By applying foam molded over a fiberglass shell, Saarinen created a single-piece form that perfectly facilitates a relaxed sitting posture. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original specifications of the designer.

Eero Saarinen

Eero Saarinen

“The purpose of architecture is to shelter and enhance man’s life on earth and to fulfill his belief in the nobility of his existence,” said Eero Saarinen in 1959. Saarinen’s architectural legacy communicates this sentiment of giddy potential and unfettered optimism in post-war America seen in iconic projects like the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and in his sculptural furniture designed for Knoll.
