The son of architect and Cranbrook Academy of Art director Eliel Saarinen and his wife, textile artist Loja, Eero Saarinen studied sculpture in Paris and architecture at Yale before working on furniture design with Norman Bel Geddes and practicing architecture with his father.
He collaborated on several projects in furniture design with his friend, Cranbrook alumnus Charles Eames, and opened his own practice in Bloomfield Hills in 1950.
Among the many buildings for which he is known are the Dulles International Airport in Washington, DC, The Gateway Arch in St.
Louis, Missouri, and the TWA Terminal at Kennedy International Airport in New York.
He was the recipient of numerous awards and the subject of many exhibitions.
Eero Saarinen's 'Womb' chair is a benchmark design in terms of both form and technology. It originated in two designs for plywood armchairs designed by Saarinen with Charles Eames for the Museum of Modern Art's 1940 competition, 'Organic Design in Home Furnishings'. The pair won the competition, but the outbreak of war prevented manufacture. After the war, Saarinen's friend Florence Knoll of Knoll Associates suggested that Saarinen develop further the large, lounge chair. The design was achieved by 1946 but it was apparently not before at least 1948 that the chair was manufactured by Knoll as model 70, the 'Womb' chair. In explaining this name, Saarinen said the chair was 'designed on the theory that a great number of people have never really felt comfortable and secure since they left the womb'.
This example, together with the ottoman en suite (W.36-2008), belonged to the American artist and designer Claire Falkenstein (1908-1997).
