Architect and designer Eero Saarinen

Eero Saarinen

(1910-1961)
architect - designer


Eero Saarinen, Finnish architect and designer from the city of Kirkkonummi, started his academic studies with an important experience in Paris, France, at the Académie de la Grande Chaumiére from 1929 until 1930 that positively influenced his creativity and his enthusiasm about the art field. Subsequently he enrolled at a degree course in architecture at the Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, US, and graduated in 1934.

Among Eero Saarinen's work partners and friends were Charles Eames and Ray Kaiser (or Eamrs), designers with whom he worked in the environment of the Cranbrook Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, US, university at which the famous architect Eliel Saarinen, his father, was teaching.

One of the elements that characterise the work of Eero Saarinen, both in architecture and industrial design, is the originality, diverseness, and uniqueness of every single creation.
