Set of Four Eero Saarinen Series 71 Executive Armchairs for Knoll


Category: Creators: ,

Item Description

Featured in nearly all Florence Knoll-designed interiors, the Saarinen Executive Chair has remained one of Knoll’s most popular designs for nearly 70 years. The design, which is now found in dining rooms as often as it is in offices, transformed the notion of what executive seating could be with its sculptural form and modern finishing. This vintage 1970s set is in original unrestored condition. Priced as a set of 4. Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was a Finnish-American architect and industrial designer known for his innovative designs and distinctive style. He is particularly famous for his sculptural, sweeping forms in both his architectural and furniture designs. Saarinen’s most notable works include the TWA Flight Center at JFK Airport in New York City, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, and the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. He was also a prolific furniture designer, creating iconic pieces such as the Womb Chair and the Tulip Chair. Saarinen’s work was characterized by a marriage of form and function, with an emphasis on creating an immersive and experiential environment for the user. His impact on the design world continues to be felt to this day.
