    • Product Information

      Eero Saarinen's desire to create a modern lounge chair that derived its comfort from its shape—not its cushioning—yielded one of the most recognizable furniture designs ever manufactured. Fueled by Florence Knoll's request for a supremely comfortable chair, one "I can curl up in," Saarinen leveraged brand new technology to investigate the material possibilities of fiberglass and resin. The result was a Knoll furniture icon—a shell that ingeniously enveloped the human form like a womb—and one of the great design solutions of the 20th Century.
