The Knoll Womb Lounge Chair, designed by the iconic Eero Saarinen in 1948, has been a symbol of modern design and comfort for over six decades. Conceived at the request of Florence Knoll, the chair’s unique design offers a comforting sense of enclosure, hence its name “Womb.” The chair’s organic form, characterized by smooth lines and soft curves, provides a cozy seating experience that cradles the body, promoting a sense of relaxation and well-being.
The craftsmanship of the Womb Lounge Chair showcases a blend of upholstery, fiberglass, and steel, embodying Saarinen’s flair for challenging conventional design rules and setting new standards for modern comfort. Its foam-covered molded fiberglass seat shell sits atop a steel rod base, available in polished chrome or black paint, showcasing not only a sleek appearance but also ensuring durability for long-lasting use.
A hallmark of mid-century modern design, the Womb Lounge Chair supports countless seating positions, allowing one to sit comfortably in various postures, making it a versatile choice for both formal and informal settings. The chair also pairs well with the Saarinen Womb Ottoman, providing a complete seating solution that enhances the aesthetic and functional appeal of any space.
The Womb Lounge Chair by Knoll is more than just a chair; it’s a statement piece that has stood the test of time, continuing to offer a blend of style, comfort, and iconic design to modern interiors. This chair is not just about aesthetic allure; it’s about providing a serene oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of modern living.
