womb lounge chair & ottoman

Design Eero Saarinen, 1948
Upholstery, fiberglass & steel
Made in USA by Knoll

Eero Saarinen's 1948 Womb chair, made exclusively for Knoll, displays the Finnish-born designer's flair for challenging rules, breaking molds and setting new standards for comfortable modern design. Saarinen designed the groundbreaking Womb Chair at Florence Knoll's request for "a chair that was like a basket full of pillows... something I could really curl up in."

With its polished chrome, black or gold plated base and frame upholstered in fabric over a fiberglass shell, the Womb chair is designed to facilitate a relaxed sitting posture, providing emotional comfort and a sense of security - hence the name "Womb." One of the most celebrated modern furniture designs, the Saarinen Womb chair is truly a chair you can curl up in.

Eero Saarinen was famous for varying his style according to the demands of the project. Saarinen studied sculpture in Paris and later Architecture at Yale. He founded his office in 1950 and his first success was the Tulip Chair produced by Knoll.
Knoll has remained true to the Bauhaus design philosophy that furniture should complement architectural space and not compete with it. Modernism is a passion at Knoll which results in ground breaking modern furniture.
