Saarinen 71 Mid Century Modern Armchair

Saarinen Model 71 Executive Arm Chair. A faithful reproduction of the 1948 modern classic sitting chair. Whether being used as a sitting, accent or dining chair, the Saarinen model is a beautiful and practical piece to compliment your modernist collection.



Making the 1940 Modernist Icon

The original design (model 71 armchair) was created in 1948 as the second chair (1st being womb) in Saarinen’s seating collection. You may notice that the 71 armchair shares the depressed cone shape design of the womb chair. The 71 armchair was originally built for use at the General Motors Technical School. Its elegant shape made it popular for use in residential spaces. Today, it is an icon representing the simple, practical design theory present in many mid-century modern pieces. The Kardiel reproduction of the 71 armchair features a bent-ply wood leg connected to an internal molded polymer shell. The chair is wrapped with multi-density foam and upholstered in a premium, durable wool fabric. Whether being used as a sitting, accent or dining chair, the Saarinen model is a beautiful and practical piece to compliment your modernist collection.




Finnish Modern Furniture Designer Eero Saarinen created the the Model 71 Arm & Side Chair in 1948 at the beginning period of what would later be recognized as the mid century modernist movement. 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.
