Description Eero Saarinen’s design career was both wildly iconic yet sadly short-lived. His work in furniture design and architecture was centuries ahead of its time and quite possibly only achievable by Saarinen himself. His furniture work aided his design process for architecture and vice a versa, he understood the human form and how people interact with design in the world. These iconic Saarinen Executive Chairs remain one of his most notable designs, instantly recognizable and widely used to this day.

The Saarinen Executive Armless Chair is perhaps the most versatile dining chair known from the Mid-Century Modern design movement. Saarinen’s mastery of swooping curves invite users to sit and be embraced by a level of comfort only he could achieve. The iconic opening of the chair’s back allows for a slight “give” as one sits back. This chair is in every way a Saarinen sculpture; beautiful at every angle.

This set of 6 Saarinen Executive Armless Chairs have been newly upholstered by the Object Refinery workroom. Our team chose a contract-grade 100% cotton velvet in the color graphite, a material which is both durable and luxurious. While very minor wear exists on their original chromed steel legs, these are excellent examples of Saarinen’s famed Executive Chair, ready to be enjoyed for years to come. Saarinen Executive Arm Chairs are also available in a separate listing, please inquire should you wish to create a combining set.
