Womb Ottoman-Riva Leather

Posted under Uncategorized

Upholstered in Spinneybeck Riva leather, which is suitable for contract use.
This is a fully licensed classic.
When Florence Knoll challenged Finnish-born architect and designer Eero Saarinen in 1948 to create a chair that she could curl up in, she had found an apt candidate for the task. The Womb Chair’s enveloping, lap-like form continues to be one of the most iconic and recognized representations of mid-century Scandinavian organic modernism. In fact, ask most designers and architects what lounge chair design they covet and they’ll promptly tell you it’s the Womb Chair. By applying foam molded over a fiberglass shell, Saarinen was able to create a single-piece form that perfectly facilitated a relaxed sitting posture and a sublime feeling of security. Additional seat and back cushions and the coordinating Womb Ottoman provide a further degree of lavish comfort. The slender steel rod base is chrome-plated using a multiple step process that results in a flawlessly polished mirror finish. Upholstered in Riva leather, Spinneybeck’s first full-aniline-dyed leather that is suitable for contract applications. Riva combines the rich hand of untreated leather with superior stain and water resistance. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.
