Womb Chair and Ottoman

Reception Seating

Womb Chair and Ottoman by Eero Saarinen, 1948. With its steel rod base with polished chrome finish and a frame upholstered in fabric over fiberglass shell, the chair is designer to facilitate a relaxed sitting posture, providing emotional comfort and a sense of security -  hence, the name "Womb." It is now one of Knoll's most recognisable designs. Womb chair is now available in a more modest footprint, 85% scale of the original design.

"When I approach an architectural problem," Eero Saarinen once said, " I try to think out the real significance of it. What is its essence and how can the total structure capture that essence?" Florence Knoll had put forth the challenge of creating "a chair she could curl up in." The Finish-born architect and interior designer responded with the 1948 Womb chair, part of his breakthrough seating collection.
