Saarinen Executive Chair
Eero Saarinen for Knoll - 1950
The design of Eero Saarinen’s Executive Chair began when he and Charles Eames submitted several designs to a design competition at the Museum of Modern Art. The Executive Chair was originally made of fiberglass but was later updated in polyurethane. Featured in nearly all Florence Knoll-designed interiors, the chair remains one of Knoll’s most popular designs. The Saarinen Executive Chair is available with or without arms, with metal or wood legs, or a swivel base.
Frame is made of molded reinforced polyurethane shell and a contoured plywood seat form. All with urethane foam cushion. Four legs in seamless tubular steel with polished chrome finish or solid steamed oak with a clear or stained finish in a variety of options. There are a variety of Knoll Textiles and Spinneybeck leathers available.
