Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, …

After the forced closure of Bauhaus in Dessau in 1932 and its short interval in Berlin, Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and others emigrated in the United States. The main International Style architects found in the United States a new working context.
The most important event was the competition “Organic Design in Home Furnishings”, already advertised in 1941 by the Museum of Modern Art on the initiative of Bloomingdale Department Store of New York. Charles Eames’ (born in 1907) and Eero Saarinen’s (1910-1961) teams were awarded the first prizes for seating furniture. The design of chairs proposed by the two architects – three-dimensional chalices – without the right angle, marked the passage from the formal interpretation of Breuer and Aalto with their bidimensional curved chairs, to the new concept of “sculpture-furniture”, whose technology was extremely modern. Most of the furniture manufactured by Herman Miller firm, in collaboration with Charles Eames, up to the sixties, was deeply influenced by the results of that competition.
