From Eero Saarinen's groundbreaking 1957 collection, the Executive Swivel Chair helped transform executive seating into a fluid, sculptural form. Still manufactured by Knoll this model was one of the first chairs constructed of a fibreglass shell, a pliable material that flexes in response to body weight, ensuring maximum comfort.

This armchair version of the Executive Swivel Chairfeatures a 5 star steel swivel base and finished with stainless steel top caps. Available in either soft or hard castors, this iconic chair is suitable for any flooring.

Castor Details:
