Knoll Eero Saarinen - Executive Arm chair (wood legs and glides)
Eero Saarinen 1950
Featured in nearly all Florence Knoll-designed interiors, the Saarinen Executive Chair remains one of our most popular designs. After completing the Womb Chair, Saarinen returned his focus to task seating, scaling down the concept and form of the womb into arm and armless chairs. Introduced as the 71 and 72 Series, the chairs replaced Florence Knoll’s model 43 chairs as the Planning Unit’s go-to seating solution. The iconic chair, often referred to as “that chair with the hole in the back,” has been a staple of the Knoll portfolio for more than 60 years.
