About the Designer

Eero Saarinen

Saarinen belonged to a Finnish immigrant family, which immigrated to the US in the early 1900s.

Saarinen was not only a furniture designer, but also a celebrated architect. After finishing his studies in Michigan, Paris and subsequently Yale university, Saarinen started working at his father’s Architecture office, where he designed several landmark structures such as the TWA Terminal at Kennedy International Airport.

Although both an architect and designer, he is mostly known for his furniture. During his career he designed himself, or in collaboration with others (eg. Charles & Ray Eames) many pieces still widely recognized today. Most of his work is associated with an organic style, using curves and bent shapes, which forms the basis of the Tulip series, a collection of chairs and tables, using marble, laminated wood and aluminium.

Today Saarinen’s work is still featured in several museums such as the MOMA, and the Museum of Finnish Architecture in NY.
