The product

  • Finish classic from 1950
  • Award-winning design
  • Fluid, organic shape
  • Available in black cashmere

With its fluid lines and sculptural beauty, the Executive Armchair is one of Saarinen's most popular and acclaimed designs. Winner of the Museum of Modern Art Award and the West Germany Federal Award for Industrial Design in 1969, the chair brings classic style to any environment. Moulded to follow the flow of the body, the chair is exceptionally comfortable and has a gentle recline for maximum relaxation. The finely crafted frame flexes in response to the weight of the body to offer ergonomic support where needed. The interesting cut out section adds a sophisticated aesthetic, and also allows for increased airflow along the back. Upholstered in luxurious cashmere, the chair has tubular steel legs, which are fitted with shock mounts to prevent jarring motions.

The story behind the Saarinen Executive Armchair

In the 1930s, Eero Saarinen met Charles Eames at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, USA. Both men were interested in exploring new materials and techniques for designing furniture and they forged a partnership. This collaboration resulted in them submitting moulded plywood chairs and modular storage units to the MoMA-sponsored 1940 Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition. The sculptural lines of their chair designs later influenced Saarinen's much more luxurious Executive Armchair. Created in 1950, the chair was originally made from fibreglass, but was updated to polyurethane to increase its flexibility.

About the Designer

Eero Saarinen

1910 (Finland) -1961 (United States)

A Finnish American architect and industrial designer, Eero Saarinen took a sculptural approach to furniture design. He was a perfectionist who was obsessed with getting the perfect curve or line, often building hundreds of models to ensure he got it right. His attention to detail paid off. His work is now iconic and includes design classics such as the Tulip Armchair, the Tulip Table and the Womb Chair.

"Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan."
