Music Playlist: Inspired by Eero Saarinen

April 30, 2013 | Music

This collection of songs was compiled with the spirit and inspiration to mirror such cleanliness and purpose of the Saarinen design aesthetic. In 1955-56, Knoll produced a truly unique line of furniture designed by Eero Saarinen. Clean, flowing lines and smooth transitions characterize Saarinen’s iconic “Tulip” furniture series. No matter the physical weight and depth of engineering precision, Saarinen’s designs retain an expressively light – and light-hearted demeanor. Just as the Tulip chair’s base quietly melts into the floor with fluidity and purpose, music can aim to minimize harsh beginnings and ends. With these features in mind, listen and enjoy.
