Rare Early Eero Saarinen for Knoll Side Chairs
April 2, 2021
For your consideration are a pair of rare and early Eero Saarinen for Knoll side chairs. These early production examples are evidenced by the unusual base structure and “Knoll Associates” label on the underside. The earliest of these chairs featured a single base on an aluminum frame with a parallel bar structure; the design was soon changed to feature two sets of legs on a chromed frame. This early example also has a fiberglass interior shell; modern production chairs have been changed to a plastic shell due to environmental concerns. Here is a chance to own a piece of design history from one of the masters of mid century design. The chairs reflect Saarinen’s graceful and organic style. One can see the same shape in these chairs as is reflected in his architecture, including iconic buildings such as the TWA terminal at JFK and the St. The upholstery is not original.
