Finnish Modern Furniture Designer Eero Saarinen created the Weekend Chair. 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 Weekend 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 Weekend Chair because it envelops allowing you to curl up and relax in comfort. Eero Saarinen designed with the human body form in mind.
