Made by Knoll
No. 71 WS Armchair (1974)
Listed for sale is a single (each chair is sold separately, though two are available) Eero Saarinen rolling executive office chair with arms. These are gorgeous and original examples, which are from 1974 (some others from the same group were dated) and came from an Ithaca, New York law office. The chairs retain their original and iconic Knoll Textiles blue fabric upholstery. The foam is all original and generally still plump and comfortable. As a general overview, each of the two chairs available have minor issues such as a small area that is more firm because of the foam or a small area of light soiling or a cosmetic imperfection in the fabric from wear. The chairs are not perfect, however, they are some of the most quintessentially original Saarinen armchairs we've ever seen. If a buyer is looking for gorgeous original examples with original material (understanding that they're not perfect), these are terrific candidates. If the buyer is hoping to reupholster the chairs, these will do, however, the original material is truly phenomenal.
The underside Knoll labels are noted in the photos and some are dated also. As far as the bases go, these can be used with the original casters or the casters can be removed so that these can be used directly on the floor. They have built-in glides as well. The chairs are also height adjustable and have a threaded shaft that allows for height adjustment.
As noted, the price listed is for each chair. Two chairs are available. The chair measures 32 inches tall by 26 inches wide and 26 inches deep.
