History: Eero Saarinen was born to world famous parents, Loja Saarinen and Eliel Saarinen. They were a textile artist and an art director/architect respectively. Since his birth, Eero was surrounded by design and as a teenager Eero helped his father design furniture. By the 1950s Saarinen began to design furniture on his own, his designs were mostly comprised of tables and chairs.
Saarinen met Charles Eames at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. The two young men quickly became great friends and were committed to exploring the potential of new processes and materials for furniture design. Their partnership was successful, and they created a revolutionary molded plywood chair collection for a 1940 competition sponsored by the MoMA. They won the first prize in every category, and were catapulted to the forefront of the American post-war modern furniture movement.
