Our reproductions are inspired by Eero Saarinen
Eero Saarinen was born in Kirkkonummi, Finland in 1910. He studied in Paris and at Yale University, after which he joined his father's practice. Eero initially pursued sculpture as his art of choice - and his later architectural and furniture designs reflect this beautifully. The design of the tulip chair and table is undeniably sculptural - its elegantly organic lines are as much art as function. After a year in art school, he decided to become an architect instead. Saarinen evolved a remarkable pallet of materials and forms, innovative use of materials and uniquely sculptural shapes - but always with a pragmatic focus upon function.
His style has been described as International and Expressionist - and indeed it is both: Utilizing a vocabulary of forms that was undoubtedly influenced by the work of designers in many countries and cultures, he produced work that pushes the boundaries of our expectations and preconceptions.
Please note that all the design classic reproductions on this website are high quality reproductions based on the original designs.
