Saarinen Conference Armchair Walnut & Cato Fabric



An iconic design by Eero Saarinen, the Conference Armchair, shown here with elegant walnut legs and Knoll’s Cato fabric upholstery, was first introduced in 1950 and revolutionised the notion of what executive seating could be.

With simple semi-circular shaping and a streamlined silhouette, the Saarinen Conference Armchair offers uncomplicated comfort through its fluid and sculptural form. Its contemporary style is accented by the several colours of Cato fabric upholstery; Knoll’s Cato fabric was introduced in 1961 and is crafted from a wool-mix composition, with an exaggerated texture that makes it the ultimate accent.

Supported by four stained walnut legs, the Saarinen Conference Armchair is awarded a rustic touch with the rich, natural grain of the wood, which contrasts beautifully with the soft woven texture of the upholstery.

Ideal as a comfortable chair in living rooms or workspaces, the Saarinen Conference Armchair presents a stylish design combined with minimalist style, and is still to this day made by renowned manufacturer Knoll.

The Saarinen Conference Armchair is available in fire red, green, grey, ivory, brown, natural and sand hues.
