Originally built for the Radisson Hotel in Copenhagen the Ameoba Chair quickly became a Mid Century Classic. It has been suggested that the Ameoba 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 Ameoba chair is the relatively thin oval body design. Its gracious curves comfortably surround the sitter. The Ameoba has appeared in movies, mags and TV since its birth in 1958. Among some of the more famous celebrities to be seen in Ameoba 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.
