Charles Eames & Eero Saarinen design. Laminate seat covered in woven grey fabric with alder hardwood legs.
For the “Organic Design in Home Furnishings” competition held by the Museum of Modern Art, Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen created an entire series of versions of the Organic chair, each intended for a different sitting position. The designs were ahead of their time, but never went into production owing to a lack of technology. Not until after 1950 was it possible to produce (and sell) larger numbers of organically molded seat shells, such as the Eames’ famous Plastic Armchair or Saarinen’s Tulip chair. While the Organic chair is a comfortable small reading armchair, the Organic Highback has a higher backrest and neck support. In addition, the armrests and seat area are broader and longer.
