Organic Chair

Charles Eames & Eero Saarinen, 1940

The Organic Chair is a compact lounge chair with a comfortably upholstered, biomorphically shaped seat shell. Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen created the chair in 1940 as part of their entry for a competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art, entitled 'Organic Design in Home Furnishings'. The armchair provides an extremely comfortable seating option for lobbies, lounges and waiting areas, and is also available in a version with a higher backrest: Organic Highback.
