Vintage Eero Saarinen Executive Side Chair for Knoll

1,900.00

Vintage Eero Saarinen Executive Side Chair designed for Knoll in 1946
Recovered in top grade black leather with correct hand stitching-see detail shots.
Vintage example offers less splayed, more elegant front legs.  Puzzling splay of current production with legs exceeding width of chair by 2” likely the result of contemporary obsession with safety at all costs.. though they might have made it even more stable with the addition of skis.
Also see detail shot of vintage example’s superior steel ball joint foot floating atop chrome capped white nylon glide.  Current glides offer less mobility and, in comparison with original design, appear squashed to the ground.
Chrome and hardware in excellent condition.  All surfaces and connective parts buffed and lubed for another half century of stellar service.
32”ht 22”w 19”dp 18”seat ht
