Information

Designed in 1946, the Womb Chair by Eero Saarinen was designed at Florence Knoll's request for "a chair that was like a basket full of pillows, something I could really curl up in." Still manufactured by Knoll this groundbreaking chair is designed to facilitate a relaxed sitting posture providing emotional comfort and a sense of security - hence the name "Womb".

There are now two size options available; original and the new version, Medium. Also included are cushions - please note some others may list the chair without cushions which comes at a cheaper price. An optional ottoman is also available.

The upholstered Womb Chair is available in a broad spectrum of colours from various Kvadrat fabrics which are all suitable for both contract and domestic use.
