More about the design - Saarinen's desire was to to address the “ugly, confusing, unrestful world” he observed underneath chairs and tables - the so-called "slum of legs."
Saarinen developed his ideas through hundreds of drawings, which were then followed by ¼ scale models. He's early training as a sculptor then allowed him to refine his design through full scale models, endlessly modifying the shape with clay. “What interests me is when and where to use these structural plastic shapes. Probing even more deeply into different possibilities one finds many different shapes are equally logical—some ugly, some exciting, some earthbound, some soaring. The choices really become a sculptor’s choice.”
