Chairs: Both Classic & Confortable


  • Womb chair (1947-48)

designer: Eero Saarinen

production: Knoll International, USA

The womb chair, or No.70, first produced by Knoll in 1948. The form of the chair reveals Saarinen's pursuance of an organically inspired design in synthetic materials. The designer's concern was the human anatomy in relation to the furniture. This particular design illustrates the intentions of Saarinen to create a chair that will accomodate people according to the way they actually seat, not the way the ought to seat. The chair encourages sitter to curl up into a foetal position and it is considered by many to be one of the most confortable chairs ever made.
