The design of Eero Saarinen’s Executive Side Chair (1946) began more than a decade earlier, when he and Charles Eames submitted several designs to the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at the MoMA. These fluid, sculptural shapes influenced the future work of both men; for Saarinen, most notably in his Womb, Tulip and Executive chairs. The Executive was originally made of fiberglass but was later updated in polyurethane. The feel of this classic seat, however, remains unchanged. The molded shell flexes slightly with the sitter and the contoured plywood seat supported by metal or wood legs. When looking at the dome-shaped glass wall of the Kresge Auditorium at MIT, it’s not a big leap to see the same shape in the back of his Executive Chair. This chair is Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified; for its use of low-emitting products. Manufactured by Knoll; according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.

Materials: Molded reinforced polyurethane shell; contoured plywood seat; solid steam-bent oak legs. Volo Leather: Spinneybeck® Volo, full-grain, semi-aniline-dyed leather.
