MORE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT ↓

Charles Eames & Eero Saarinen Organic Conference Chair

The Organic Chair – a small and comfortable reading chair – was developed in several versions for the 1940 'Organic Design in Home Furnishings' competition organized by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. With its sculptural shapes, the design was ahead of the times.

But due to the absence of suitable manufacturing techniques, the armchair never went into production. Not until 1950 did it become possible to manufacture and market organically shaped seat shells in large quantities, as exemplified by Charles and Ray Eames's famous Plastic Armchair or Saarinen's Tulip Chair.

The Organic Conference Chair is also available in a version with an extended backrest and longer, wider armrest — the Organic Highback Chair as well as the smaller Organic Chair.

Designers: Charles Eames & Eero Saarinen, 1940
Manufacturer: Vitra
Dimensions: 29"w | 22"d | 36.75"h | 16.5" seat height

Construction: Seat shell is laminated. Upholstery is polyurethane foam with a fabric cover. Legs are either Black Ash or Natural Oak with a protective finish. Fitted with plastic glides for carpet, felt glides for hard floors additionally included.

Available in a wide range of fabrics and finishes.  Contact us, we'd love to assist you with custom options.
