Finnish Modern Furniture Designer Eero Saarinen created the Womb Chair, originally known as the Wombat Chair in 1948. He believed strongly that the whole field of design is all one body. He had three design principles - Function, Structure and being part of the time. The Womb Chair design consists of molded fiber glass shell covered with foam and then upholstered. The chair and ottoman is supported by a bent tubular frame. To increase the comfort, Eero also designed the chair with loose cushions and a coordinating ottoman. It was named Womb Chair because it envelops allowing you to curl up and relax in comfort. Eero Saarinen designed with the human body form in mind. A simple concept yes, but many designers prefer aesthetics to functionality. In nearly every case, a piece of furniture that rises to become a classic has both striking artistic form as well as function. The Womb Chairs organic form is representative of the mid century Scandinavian modernism style of furniture using synthetic materials to create inspired forms.
