About This Item: 
One of the most celebrated, prolific, and unorthodox architects and designers of the twentieth century, Eero Saarinen has become a beacon of American modernism While famous for his sculptural and bold architecture, such as the Gateway Arch in St Louis, Missouri and the TWA Terminal at the John F Kennedy International Airport in New York, Eero Saarinen: Furniture for Everyman is the first monograph to focus exclusively on his furniture designs A self-declared form-giver, his furniture, like his architecture, is characterized by its sleek and expressive forms Taken into production by the furniture company Knoll, which was co-owned by his friend Florence Knoll, Saarinen s designs were trend-setting and revolutionary As many of them continue to be produced today, such as the well-known and loved Womb chair and his Pedestal Collection, they are ubiquitous Featuring rare and never-before-seen archival photographs that span Saarinen s technical work to his personal life, a preface by Florence Knoll, and a piece by designer and Saarinen protege Niels Diffrient, Eero Saarinen: Furniture for Everyman is the authoritative and comprehensive guide to the furniture designs and legacy of the modern master."
