Originally built for the Radisson Hotel in Copenhagen the Amoeba Chair quickly became a Mid Century Classic. It has been suggested that the Amoeba chair design was actually inspired by Eero Saarinen's Womb Chair, although the Womb chair is a considerably more comfortable chair from a practical perspective. An admired trait of the Amoeba chair is the relatively thin oval body design. Its gracious curves comfortably surround the sitter. The Amoeba has appeared in movies, mags and TV since its birth in 1958. Among some of the more famous celebrities to be seen in Amoeba Chairs in photo shoots are Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot on cover of Vogue in the 1960s, and more recently Michelle Pfiefer on the cover of Esquire Magazine.
