Womb Chair

Description

Designer Eero Saarinen created 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 this demand for superior comfort in mind the Womb chair doesn’t disappoint.

The Womb chair boasts a polished chrome-plated steel base with an upholstered, moulded fibreglass shell. The ultimate designer armchair that blends organic shape and quirky aesthetic doesn’t compromise on practicality or style.

Like many of Saarinen’s furniture designs, the Womb chair required production techniques and materials still in the infancy of their existence. Saarinen and Knoll found a boat builder in New Jersey who was experimenting with fibreglass and resin to help develop manufacturing methods for the new chair.

As Knoll explains, “He was very sceptical. We just begged him. I guess we were so young and so enthusiastic he finally gave in and worked with us. We had lots of problems and failures until they finally got a chair that would work.”

The enveloping, sculptural form of the Womb chair continues to be one of the most iconic and recognised representations of mid-century Scandinavian style, making it an ideal investment piece for both traditional and modern interior schemes.
