The product

  • Organic design from 1950
  • Sculptural and comfortable
  • Matches Saarinen Armchair, sold separately

The Executive Side Chair shares the same fluid lines and ergonomic style as the Executive Armchair, but comes without arms making it ideal for dining. The award winning design is curved to support the body in all the right places, making this an extremely comfortable chair. The distinctive cut out section enables increased airflow to the back, as well as providing an interesting aesthetic. The chair's seat is specially made to adapt to the weight of the user to make it even more relaxing. 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 Side Chair

In the 1930s, Eero Saarinen collaborated with Charles Eames to create a range of organically-shaped plywood chairs. These went on to win the MoMA-sponsored 1940 Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition. This work inspired Saarinen to design a chair that would provide exceptional comfort from its shell alone, and not just from the furnishing. His luxurious and sculptural Executive Side Chair and the matching Executive Armchair were the results. The shells for these chairs were originally made from fibreglass but were later changed to polyurethane to increase flexibility. The design won the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award and the West Germany Federal Award for Industrial Design.

WHY BUY FROM US?

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."
