Originally designed for the ?Organic Design in Home Furnishings? competition held by the Museum of Modern Art in 1941, Eames and Saarinen created several versions of the Organic Chair, each intended for a different sitting position. The designs were ahead of their time though and the Organic Chair never went into production due to a lack of technology. Not until after 1950 was it possible to produce and distribute large numbers of organically molded seat shells.
