Eero Saarinen

Finnish, 1910 - 1961
Eero Saarinen was a Finnish architect and industrial designer considered by many to be one of the great masters of 20th century architecture. Working alongside such fellow masters as Charles Eames and Hans and Florence Knoll, Saarinen rose to prominence in the 1940s after winning both the first prize in the "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition in 1940 and the 1948 competition for the design of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. His high popular Grasshopper, Womb, and Tulip chairs would also be produced for the masses in this period, with the Womb in particular earning high praise for the incredible comfort it provided.
Having designed the headquarters of corporations like IBM, CBS, and John Deere and college campus buildings at  Vassar, Hill College House at the University of Pennsylvania, Saarinen's style of "neofuturism" often shifted with each design depending on the needs of his client.
