Knoll relaunched Eero Saarinen’s Womb chair, first launched in 1948 as a seating that cocoons the user to provide a feeling of security. The chair came about when Saarinen tried to achieve comfort through shape (instead of cushioning). Its shape supports multiple sitting positions. Materials used include reinforced fiberglass shell, plywood platform, polyester fiber padding with foam core, steel rod frame with black powder-coated or polished chrome finish, stainless steel and nylon glides, and fabric or leather upholstery.
