Designed by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen. Classic and comfortable small reading chair, designed in 1940. Authentically manufactured by Vitra, true to the original design. The chair was first made as a contribution to the New York MoMA's "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition. Formally speaking it was ahead of its time, but owing to the lack of manufacturing techniques, it wasn't put into series production. It was not until after 1950 that it became possible to manufacture larger quantities of organically shaped seat shells and market them.
Available in standard or High Back version with an elongated backrest with a moulded neck support, making it a comfortable armchair for lounging or reading. Prices shown are for Tonus upholstery - please contact us for alternative fabrics.
