Eero Saarinen 1948

A Womb Chair fit for two. We are very pleased to welcome the Womb Settee back to the Knoll line up. The design has been out of production, but never out of style. The double-wide design is the perfect modern refuge for the living room, bedroom or office.

In 1948 Eero Saarinen designed the groundbreaking Womb Chair at Florence Knoll’s specific request for “a chair that was like a basket full of pillows…something I could really curl up in.”

Construction and Details

Seat shell is foam-covered molded fiberglass
Base is steel rod with polished chrome finish
GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified®

Like many of Saarinen’s furniture designs, the Womb Chair required production techniques and materials still in the infancy of their existence. Saarinen and Florence Knoll found a boat builder in New Jersey who was experimenting with fiberglass and resin to help develop manufacturing methods for the new chair. Florence Knoll: “He was very skeptical. We just begged him. I guess we were so young and so enthusiastic he finally gave in and worked with us. We had lots of problems and failures until they finally got a chair that would work.”
