5 Vintage Office Chair Designs to Know
EERO SAARINEN'S SERIES 71 CHAIR
Introduced in 1950, the Saarinen Executive Armchair is notable for its swooping, bat-like shape and crescent back cut-out. Originally docked on stationary, antenna-like legs, this vintage office chair can now also be found with a swivel base. Regardless of which version you fall for, its pod-like shape cradles the body, ensuring that feeling overworked is a thing of the past.
MAX PEARSON EXECUTIVE CHAIR
Following Eero Saarinen, it was Max Pearson’s secretarial chair that assumed the role of the Planning Unit’s standard task chair, and in 1966 Pearson introduced his own version of the executive chair. Featuring a sculpted, womb-like shape, inset cushions, and a stainless swivel base, the chair can frequently be found upholstered in popsicle-right colors. Consider this one a plush, futuristic take on the boss’s chair.
CHARLES POLLOCK EXECUTIVE CHAIR
A curved, shell-like seat makes you the pearl in the oyster that is Charles Pollock’s Executive Chair. A molded seat offers up supreme comfort, while an upholstered lining provides a pop of color on the chair front. An aluminum rim and tufting on the upholstery are extra glamorous rifts that finish the look.
STEELCASE 430 CHAIR
While Steelcase has continued to innovate the office chair into the new millennium, it’s their original 430 Chair, introduced in 1974, that still captivates us most. Identifiable by the tagline “The chair that loves people,” the 430 was a precursor to the ergonomic chairs that dominate the market today. While the chair’s focus was comfort contouring, we can’t get over the bold colored upholstery they sport. Indeed, this chair is a literal manifestation of how 4:30 on a Friday feels.
EAMES SOFT PAD LOUNGER
In the 1950s, following the success of their molded chairs, Ray and Charles Eames were challenged to design outdoor seating. The result was the Aluminum Group series. While the chair from that series, the Aluminum Group Chair, features a long, languid caterpillar profile (complete with segmented upholstery), the Soft Pad Lounger comes off like its more-buttoned, polished-up cousin. With a slightly straighter sit and wider segments that appear to have been pumped full of air, these chairs absolutely exude comfort. And when it comes to the grind, who doesn’t want that?
