Saarinen's Model 70 Series: Contour, Cushion and Comfort


Comfort depends just as much on the contouring of the shell and shape of the chair as it does on the cushioning, as Eero Saarinen pointed out after the success of his iconic Womb Chair.  Using his combination of proper contours and cushions, Saarinen added his Model 71 Armchair and Model 72 Side Chair to this now iconic Model 70 Series.

The Modern Classics reproductions of the Model 71 Armchair and Model 72 Side Chair use the same contouring and dimensions that Saarinen created decades ago.  Our shell is crafted from molded polymer for maximum strength and flexibility, whereas the signature version still uses HPPE plastic.  With options of 17 leather colors, 40 options of fabric colors and 3 different options for the base, there are countless ways to make these Model 70 Series Chairs all your own!

Come check these out, along with the artwork seen below here by Sharon Kingston, at either our Chicago or Seattle Showroom!
