    The Knoll Womb Chair is a modern classic of furniture design, created by Finnish-American architect and designer Eero Saarinen in 1948. The chair was originally designed as part of a series of furniture pieces for the Knoll furniture company.

    The Womb Chair is named for its enveloping, womb-like shape, which was designed to provide a comfortable and supportive seating experience. Saarinen's design for the Womb Chair was based on his belief that furniture should be designed from the inside out, taking into consideration the needs and comfort of the user. The chair's organic form and sculptural quality have made it an enduring icon of mid-century modern design.

    The Womb Chair has been exhibited in museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, and has been featured in numerous films, television shows, and advertisements. It is widely recognized as a masterpiece of furniture design and a symbol of the mid-century modern era.
