Designed in 1946, the enveloping form of the Womb Chair continues to be one of the most iconic and recognized representations of mid- century organic modernism. By applying foam molded over a fiberglass shell, Saarinen created a single- piece form that perfectly facilitates a relaxed sitting posture.

The expressive sculptural forms of Eero Saarinen’s furniture can also be found in his architecture, from the TWA Terminal at Kennedy Airport to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to Dulles International Airport.
