The Model 71 Arm Chair was designed and introduced in 1950 by Saarinen as the third chair of his iconic Model 70 Series of chairs. (The other two chairs of this series are the Model 70 Womb Chair and the Model 72 Side Chair.) The Model 71 Armchair was created specifically for executive offices of the General Motors Technical School that Saarinen was also designing as lead architect.
Our M71 Saarinen Style Executive Arm Chair is inspired by this Saarinen Model 71 Arm 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.
