Eames & Saarinen Organic Chair

Charles & Ray Eames and Eero Saarinen Organic Chair
as seen on eBay.com

We were browsing eBay.com and found the Charles & Ray Eames and Eero Saarinen Organic Chair in a wonderful Murano Yellow upholstery. The Organic Chair is a comfortable small reading chair and was made in 1940 as a contribution to the New York MoMA’s “Organic Design in Home Furnishings” competition. Formally speaking it was ahead of its time, but owing to the lack of manufacturing techniques, never went into series production. It was not until after 1950 that it became possible to manufacture larger quantities of organically shaped seat shells and market them. The first were chairs such as Eames’ famous Plastic Armchair or Saarinen’s Tulip Chair. Collection Vitra Design Museum.
