Introduced in 1950, Eero Saarinen's versatile Conference Chair is one of the Finnish designer's most enduring models, meeting his characteristically high standards with rule-challenging forms. Still manufactured by Knoll this groundbreaking chair transformed the notion of what executive seating could be with its sculptural form and modern finishing.

With chrome legs it takes on a more corporate shape than with wooden legs, yet it's still more domestic that its swivel base brother. You can choose between chrome legs or a selection of wooden legs above.
