Provenance

This original Grasshopper chair and ottoman was designed for Knoll in 1946 by Eero Saarinen. The Grasshopper is the first chair Saarinen designed in a series of sculptural chairs created for Knoll throughout the 1940s and 1950s. Knoll manufactured the chair and ottoman for nineteen-years and ended its production in 1965. Visually light, yet incredibly sturdy, the Grasshopper chair with its lean and angular lines, takes up little space with the eye. Yet, as a lounge chair the Grasshopper is an amazingly sturdy seat that provides lumbar support for your back, and a nice comfortable recline, to ease one into relaxation. Masterfully restored and reupholstered in zebra hide.
