Organic Chair

Organic Chair
by Vitra

Designed by
Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen
for Vitra 1940

The Organic Chair – a small and comfortable reading chair – was developed in several versions for the 1940 ‘Organic Design in Home Furnishings’ competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. With its sculptural shapes, the design was ahead of the times.

The Organic Chair offers superb comfort, thanks to its comfortably upholstered, biomorphically shaped seat shell. The Organic Chair is also available in a version with an extended backrest and longer, wider armrests – the Organic Highback armchair. The Organic Conference version can be used as table seating.


Available in a selection of Vitra fabrics and leathers. Please enquire for further information.
