Information

The Organic Highback Chair designed by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen is the highback version of the original Organic Chair, an extremely comfortable reading chair, made in 1940 as a contribution to the New York MoMA's "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition.

The Organic Highback Chair was way ahead of its time, but owing to the lack of manufacturing techniques, never went into series production. It wasn't until after 1950 that it became possible to manufacture larger quantities of organically shaped seat shells and market them. The first were chairs such as Eames' famous Plastic Armchair or Saarinen's Tulip Chair.

Manufactured by Vitra the Organic Chair come in a range of Tonus, Cosy, Credo and Hopsak fabrics with black ash or natural oak legs. For more information on Vitra fabrics see the Vitra Fabrics Page
