Eero Saarinen for Knoll Executive Armchair in Leather
Eero Saarinen for Knoll executive office desk chair upholstered in Edelman Dream Cow full grain leather in Fudge. Rare and on original vintage 4-spoke Shepherd caster base.
A classic of mid century modern design and still sold today. Saarinen revolutionized executive office seating with the introduction of these organic and sculptural desk chairs, reminiscent of the curvilinear lines of his architectural work seen in the TWA terminal at JFK and the St. Louis arch. Constantly pushing material and aesthetic boundaries, Saarinen expanded the modern vocabulary to include curvilinear and organically-inspired forms not found in the work of his predecessors.
