Eames & Saarinen Conference Chair

Eames & Saarinen Conference chair design-a licensed reproduction by Vitra.
Iconic and futuristic chair form famously designed in 1940 for furniture design competition at MOMA NY in 1941 entitled, “Organic Design in Home Furnishings.”  
Because the technology and production costs of the day could not accommodate the fertile imagination of America’s leading postwar designers, the chair remained out of production until 2006 when Vitra used the license and prototypes to produce these groundbreaking forms in various formats.  
This example is a slightly higher and forward tilted version of the lounge chair offering a more unusual upright conference height chair with same biomorphic seat.  
The thin profile is made possible by high density polyurethane foam.  
Meticulous hand stitched wool hopsack upholstery in a gentle green hue combined with ebonized ash legs offers a sharp contrast to highlight the soft biomorphic seat design.
Note: chair seat height is two inches higher than 17.5 lounge seat height, pitch is also more upright.
