Eero Saarinen for Knoll International Set of Six Dining Chairs

About the Item

Eero Saarinen for Knoll International, set of six dining chairs, model '72', chrome-plated steel, fiberglass, fabric, United States, design 1948, produced 1970s Dining chairs model '72' designed by Eero Saarinen. The chairs feature a fluid, sculptural form. This timeless and versatile design continues to fit seamlessly into office or private environment. Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was a Finnish-American architect who helped to shape the American postwar architecture of progression and optimism. Saarinen designed several airports and worked for large corporate clients such as IBM and General Motors. This meant that the identity of Saarinen's architecture went hand in hand with the identity of these companies. His design was also used in many companies and homes and thus helped to shape the aesthetic landscape of the United States in the 1950s and 1960s. Knoll International was founded in New York by the 26 year old German Hans Knoll (1914-1955) in 1938. Hans' father, Walter Knoll was a true modernist and furniture manufacturer who had a reputation for quality. When Hans Knoll died at a young age his wife Florence Knoll took over and under her influence the company flourished and created its best designs. She designed and led the company where she cooperated with talented designers such as Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Richard Schultz and Harry Bertoia.
