Son of the celebrated architect Eliel Saarinen, Eero was classically trained in sculpture and architecture. His collaboration with Charles Eames in 1937 led to the creation of the Organic Armchair.
Made from plywood and foam rubber, it was the first three-dimensional shaped bucket armchair. Saarinen continued to develop this theme in the following years with designs that included the Grasshopper, Womb and Tulip chairs, all for Knoll. Among the many buildings for which he is known are Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C., and the TWA terminal at Kennedy International Airport in New York.
