Reading armchair of Eames and Saarinen
With the Organic Chair 1940, Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen created a comfortable chair that was far ahead of its time: even today, this piece of furniture is highly topical.
The Organic Chair - a comfortable small reading chair - was created in 1940 as a contribution to the "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition of the Museum of Modern Arts in New York. The collaboration between the two design legends Eames and Saarinen bore fruit: formally, the different versions of the Organic Chair were ahead of their time. Due to a lack of production techniques, however, the armchair never went into series production. It was only after 1950 that organically shaped seat shells could be produced and sold in larger quantities, such as Charles and Ray Eames' famous Plastic Armchair or Saarinen's Tulip Chair.
The Organic Chair by Vitra in natural oak / Sheepskin is available in a limited edition as part of the Vitra Winter Campaign 2019/2020. The sheepskin cover gives the chair a very special, soft look, which underlines the natural aesthetics of the chair and its comfort in the best way. Whether in a chalet in the mountains or in your own four walls, the Organic Chair cuts a fine figure everywhere. The chair envelops the user in a pleasant way and keeps him warm. On the underside of the seat there is a label that identifies the chair as a limited edition. So every chair is a real unique specimen and a great collector's item.
