DWR Saarinen/Knoll Event
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
From last night's DWR-Roslyn Event celebrating 50 Years of Saarinen. This is how my den looks in my imagination.
The Tulip tables and Tulip chair in Platinum, the new base color introduced to mark the 50th Anniversary. Originally the three colors were black, white and aluminum but for many years only the black and white had been produced.
Just visible in the background is a blow-up shot of Saarinen's iconic TWA Terminal at JFK airport.
The terminal will open to Jet Blue passengers in late summer 2008.
After listening to the presentation and seeing the entire collection I really want to visit the Saarinen House and Cranbook Art Museum in Detroit to get a sense of what inspired Eero Saarinen and his father Eliel. Until then I'll have to make do with lusting after the red fabric Womb chair and the Executive armchair in Volo leather that I sat in last night. Soooo stylish and comfy.
