Design by Charles Eames & Eero Saarinen, 1940.

Originally designed for the "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition held by the Museum of Modern Art, Eames and Saarinen created a variety of versions of the Organic Chair each intended for a different sitting position. The designs were ahead of their time but the Organic Chair never went into production due to a lack in technology. Not until after 1950 was it possible to produce and distribute large numbers of organically molded seat shells.

Now over 70 years since it was originally designed, the Organic Chair continues to make it's way into modern interiors everywhere. Designed with black beech legs and a supportive backrest that are reclined at a relaxed angle, the Organic Chair makes a comfortable place to read or make your guests feel at home. The Organic Chair Collection also offers Highback and Conference versions for whatever occasion fits your needs.

Available in a variety of colors.
