The Saarinen Side Chair (Model 72 Side Chair Reproduction) was designed and introduced in 1948 by Saarinen as the second chair of his iconic Model 70 Series of chairs. Because of its production simplicity, the Model 72 Side Chair was conceived as a chair for large volume projects. But its refined form also makes it a good fit for any settling with a more residential feel.
Our Saarinen Side Chair is a high quality reproduction of this Saarinen Model 72 Side Chair. Our internal shell is made of a molded polymer fiberglass. Next a molded foam is placed over the shell, then upholstered and the legs are attached. Upholstery options include both our classic Italian leathers and our exclusive 100% polyester boucle fabric with stain guard. The Leg options we offer are: solid stainless steel, a swivel base or wood. The stainless steel legs are solid stainless steel bar stock with adjustable foot glides. The swivel base model is made of stainless steel with rubber feet. Our wood legs are made of North American Red Oak, steam bent into shape and then finished in one of four colors, suitable for both commercial and residential applications.
We are proud of our version of the Model 72, which we call the Saarinen Side Chair. Offered in a wide selection of leather and two styles of legs: stainless steel or swivel base. Shown here in Cafe au Lait leather. Features:
