THE DESIGN | FEATURES AT A GLANCE | DIMENSIONS | ORDER WITH CONFIDENCE The Design Eero Saarinen might be considered by some to be a purist when it came to his approach towards architecture and interior design. He sought the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution within an overall unity of design. To that end, he designed the Executive Chair in 1957 recognizing the importance of user comfort. Saarinen became the first to construct a chair shell from fiberglass, a pliable material that flexes in response to body weight. The Executive Task Chair with Arms is available in various fabric and leather upholstery options. In 1969, Saarinen's Executive Chair won both the prestigious Museum of Modern Art Award Federal Award for Industrial Design. Additionally, the Tulip Chair is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified�.
