Knoll Saarinen Womb Ottoman
Designer: Eero Saarinen
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.
