Designed by Eero Saarinen Womb Chair

The son of architect and Cranbrook Academy of Art director Eliel Saarinen and his spouse, fabric artist Loja, Eero Saarinen studied exceptional arts in Paris and architecture at Yale earlier than running on furnishings layout with Norman Bel Geddes and practicing architecture with his father in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He collaborated on several tasks, inclusive of a plywood leg splint for the U.S. Army, together with his pal, Cranbrook alumnus Charles Eames. He opened his personal exercise in Ann Arbor in 1950. Among the various buildings for which he is recognised are Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C., The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri and the TWA Terminal at Kennedy International Airport in New York. He was the recipient of severa awards and the problem of many exhibitions.
