Womb Chair

Designed By

Eero Saarinen, a Finnish-American industrial designer and architect, designed the Womb Chair in 1946. Florence Knoll challenged Saarinen to design a chair that was like “a basket full of pillows.” Saarinen created a single-piece chair fully cushioned and upholstered with fabric in the relaxed sitting position. You could sit in the chair in many different positions, and it would still be comfortable.
