I want ‘a chair that is like a basketful of pillows’, a chair ‘to really curl up in’, said Florence Knoll to Eero Saarinen when he was thinking about creating a chair with its comfort based on the design of the seat rather than the cushioning. Having won the competition for Organic Design at MoMA, New York, Saarinen stuck with the theme and worked on designs for smaller work chairs. But Knoll encouraged him to be bold and go for something bigger. Based on their conversations and after a long series of manufacturing attempts, 1946 saw the birth of one of the most comfortable classics of all time, the Womb Chair.

Womb Relax

The Womb Relax is a version of the classic chair with a little more upholstery and is also available in leather. Thanks to a new manufacturing method, the Relax model is more affordable than the classic model. The frame of the Womb Relax chair and ottoman comes in either chrome or black.
