Eero Saarinen designed the groundbreaking Womb Chair at Florence Knoll's request for “a chair that was like a basket full of pillows - something she could really curl up in”. This mid-century classic supports countless positions and offers a comforting oasis of calm—hence the name. The new relax edition has softer upholstery than the classic ans at a lower price point.

Designed By Eero Saarinen
After Saarinen joined the Knoll design team in the 40's he spent the next 15 years designing many of the most recognisable Knoll pieces, including the Tulip chairs and tables, the Womb chair, and the 70 series seating collection. Eero, who was known for being obsessed with revision, took a sculptural approach to furniture design, building hundreds of models and full scale mock-ups to achieve the perfect curve, find the right line, and derive the most pleasing proportions. His designs, which employed modern materials in graceful, organic shapes, helped establish the reputation and identity of Knoll during its formative years.
