The Furniture of Eero Saarinen: Designs for Everyday Living examines the range of furniture designs from one of the most important and influential architects of the 20th Century. This is the first survey of his Saarinen’s body of work from the 1930’s to the 1960’s, seen in context of post-war modernism. Saarinen's furniture designs, many created in collaboration with Florence Knoll, such as the Tulip Collection and Womb Chair have become classics, still produced today by Knoll Studio. Many are in the Permanent Collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
