About Eero Saarinen
Born in Finland, 1910, Eero Saarinen moved with his parents to the United States in 1923 and then to Paris in 1929 where he studied before attending the Architecture program at Yale in 1930.
After graduation he first worked as a furniture designer with Bel Geddes, followed on by joining his father’s architecture practice in Ann Arbor, renamed Saarinen & Saarinen.
He was astonishingly influential in shaping the American postwar design fashion. Eero was primed from the start to take a place among the designers and architects developing and strengthening an environment primed to change the domestic and industrial face of the country.
