Saarinen Executive Chair with Molded Plastic Back - Tubular Legs


Featured in nearly all Florence Knoll-designed interiors, the Saarinen Executive Chair has remained one of our most popular designs for nearly 70 years. The design, which is now found in dining rooms as often as it is in offices, transformed the notion of what executive seating could be with its sculptural form and modern finishing.

The plastic back offers a lighter, more flexible design for a variety of spaces.
