The Designer Eero Saarinen might be considered by some to be a purist when it came to his approach towards architecture and interior design. He sought the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution within an overall unity of design. To that end, he designed the Executive Chair in 1957 recognizing the importance of user comfort. Saarinen became the first to construct a chair shell from fiberglass, a pliable material that flexes in response to body weight. In 1969, Saarinen's Executive Chair won both the prestigious Museum of Modern Art Award and the Federal Award for Industrial Design. Additionally, the Tulip Chair is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified®.
