Womb Chair Medium, 1948

Womb chair medium size by Eero Saarinen for Knoll.

When asked by Florence Knoll to design 'a chair that was like a basket full of cushions - something she could really curl up in', Eero Saarinen produced the Womb chair.
Manufacturing the Womb chair proved a challenge, and Saarinen and Florence Knoll had to turn to - and beg - a boat builder to undertake the challenge. Despite being used to working with fibreglass, there were many failures before the team reached the result we know.

The Womb chair is wildly acclaimed as one of the most comfortable modern chairs produced.

Original larger Womb Chair is available from the range below.
