Knoll Saarinen Womb Chair Relax
Designer: Eero Saarinen 1946
Florence Knoll had put forth the challenge of creating "a chair she could curl up in." The Finnish-born architect and interior designer responded with the 1948 Womb chair part of his breakthrough seating collection. With its steel rod base with a polished chrome finish and a frame upholstered in fabric over a fiberglass shell the chair is designed to facilitate a relaxed sitting posture providing emotional comfort and a sense of security - hence the name Womb now one of Knoll's most recognizable designs.
Now re-engineered in the Relax version for even more comfort.
The Knoll logo is stamped into the structure of the chair.
