Eero Saarinen designed the groundbreaking Womb Chair and Ottoman at Florence Knoll’s request for “a chair that was like a basket full of pillows… something I could really curl up in.” Eero Saarinen was eager to continue exploring the possibilities of a chair that achieved comfort through the shape of its shell, not the depth of its cushioning. The fiberglass design supports multiple sitting postures as well as a sense of enclosure. Designed in 1948, it remains one of the most iconic symbols of mid-century modern design.
