One of the most recognisable pieces to come out of the prolific post-war era – in addition to television, rock’n’roll and velcro – our Replica Eames/Saarinen Organic Chair was the joint brainchild of American modernist designers Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen.

Originally dreamed up by the original designers for an organic home furnishing competition at NYC’s MoMA way back in 1941, the curvy design didn’t go into mass production until a decade later when manufacturing techniques advanced to be able to produce the organic shaped seat shell in significant quantities…..and its revolutionary ergonomic design quickly made it the new must-have for modern mid-century households.

Our premium replica is a faithful reproduction of the original design, which mimics the natural sitting position and features a fibreglass shell, hand-stitched first-class upholstery and solid timber legs.

Not only that, it’s available in a range of funky retro-inspired colours in a choice of oak or walnut timber legs.

This is a Matt Blatt replica of the original design.

The Story

One of the most recognisable pieces to come out of the prolific post-war era – in addition to television, rock’n’roll and velcro – our Replica Eames/Saarinen Organic Chair was the joint brainchild of American modernist designers Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen.

The Original Designer
Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen

Charles Eames hails from Missouri, where he originally worked in architecture, before moving into design at Michigan’s Cranbrook Academy of Art, where he met his partner Ray, who had previously studied painting in New York. The pair moved to California during the 1940s, and contributed to the war effort with their practical moulded plywood creations, before beginning production in earnest in 1946.

Design was in the blood for Finnish-American icon Eero Saarinen. The child of famous architect Eliel and artist Loja, by the time he was a teenager Eero was already helping his father design furniture and fixtures for the prestigious Cranbrook Academy of Art, where he later taught…and met Charles Eames.

The like-minded pair collaborated on several projects, the most renowned being their winning collection of moulded plywood chairs for an organic furniture design contest at NYC’s MoMA in 1940 – instantly making their name in the American modernist movement.

Serious about quality
Not all replicas are created equal

Sure, there are plenty of replicas out there in the market, but here at MB we’re as committed to the quality of our replica pieces as we are our original designer items…and it shows. Our Replica Eames/Saarinen Organic Chair is manufactured exclusively for us, using the finest quality materials (see below), and is rigorously quality tested to ensure maximum strength, durability and longevity – just a few of the reasons why a Matt Blatt replica is in a league of its own – and that’s just the way we like it.

Premium Materials
Top-grade Timber & Fine Fabrics

For MB customers, only the best will do - lucky you. That’s why our Replica Eames/Saarinen Organic chair features timber sourced from the USA, Canada and Europe and only use first and seconds – basically the best cuts from the log – which have the smoothest finish, with minimal knots and imperfections.

But that's not all. To ensure your Replica Eames/Saarinen Organic chair will age beautifully and require minimal maintenance (just a quick wipe with a soft cloth from time to time), we've coated the timber with Italian-manufactured Sayerlack, the world’s finest timber lacquer which offers the ultimate protection against chipping or fading – and it looks pretty schmick too.

Our Italian fabrics are manufactured by the same company which supplies some of Europe’s premium brands (we’re pretty fussy about our fabrics). Our Castello fabric is crafted from 63% cotton and 37% linen, while Emilio is 100% cotton.
