Grasshopper Lounge Chair designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll International

About the Item

Knoll International Grasshopper Lounge chair, Modell No. 61 designed by Eero Saarinen in 1946. Seat upholstered in grey fabric & birch plywood base. Manufactured by Knoll International ca. in 1958-1960. The chair is in overall very good vintage condition, showing few signs of age and wear & further a small repair in the fabric on the bottom of the seat. Manufactured by Knoll International ca. in 1960. in comparison to the early model (we have in stock) we can date this chair to ca. 1960 because of the supporting steel rod under the base and seat, which was not used in the earlier editions. The grasshopper lounge chair with these improvements became more solid and durable compared with the earlier editions of the chair.
