Model 61 “Grasshopper” Lounge Chair by Eero Saarinen

Eero Saarinen for Knoll International
Design: 1946 | Manufactured: 1950s

This design classic got its name, Grasshopper Chair, because the chair’s curved bentwood arms/legs reminded Saarinen of a grasshopper’s hind legs. The seat was meant for relaxing and leaning back to read or relax. The chair is restored, conforming to its original manufacturing methods and material. No-sag springs, horse hair, and foam restored the interior to ensure durable comfort, whereas the high-end fabric complements the quirky shape of the chair and overall look. The chair is upholstered all the way around, so including the underside.

Eero Saarinen was a Finnish-American architect and furniture designer best known for designing the now-called TWA Flight Center in New York City and the Womb Chair (designed in 1947). Knoll took all Saarinen chairs into production and became highly successful internationally.

The Grasshopper Chair was designed in 1946 under Model number 61 and produced only shortly (until 1965) by Knoll Associates.

Please note the patina and signs of usage on the wooden frame. We decided not to restore these, since it proves its authenticity and age.
