Designer: Eero Saarinen

 

Eero Saarinen was a Finnish American architect and industrial designer of the 20th century famous for varying his style according to the demands of the project: simple, sweeping, arching structural curves or machine-like rationalism.

Eero Saarinen was elected a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 1952. He is also a winner of the AIA Gold Medal in 1962.

Saarinen is now considered one of the masters of American 20th century architecture. There has been a veritable surge of interest in Saarinen's work in recent years, including a major exhibition and several books. This is partly because of the Roche and Dinkeloo office having donated their Saarinen archives to Yale University, but also because Saarinen's oeuvre can be said to fit in with present-day concerns about pluralism of styles. He was criticized in his own time - most vociferously by critic Vincent Scully—for having no identifiable style; one explanation for this is that Saarinen adapted his modernist vision to each individual client and project, which were never exactly the same.

 

Art: Tulip Chair (armless)

 

In the 1950s, architect and designer Eero Saarinen set forth a goal, to create new meaning and visual appeal to chairs and tables, through sculpting concepts and techniques. He set out to resolve the confusing nature created by the underside of typical chairs and tables and the void they created in an increasingly unrestful world. The Tulip Chair, originally designed as part of his famous pedestal collection in 1956 was truly a functional work of art. It featured a sculptural continuous seat and back which rested on a curved tapered base that became a key character trait of the pedestal series.
