Produced by Knoll since 1948, the Womb chair has become an iconic example of modern furniture design. The complex organic shaped shell is made from a padded fibreglass with polished chrome legs.
The design, commissioned by Florence Knoll, allowed Eero Saarinen to continue exploring the possibilities of a chair that achieved comfort through the shape of its shell, rather than the depth of cushioning - a concept he had worked on previously with Charles Eames. The resulting ergonomic chair envelopes the user, hence its unusual name.
