A new monograph focusing on the furniture designs of Eero Saarinen has been published and is available at Design Within Reach. From the DWR press release: "Pre-order your copy of EeroSaarinen: Furniture for Everyman by Brian Lutz. Available at Design Within Reach, the first 50 copies of this book will be signed by the author. You’re also invited to meet the author at our Flatiron Studio in NYC on September 27.

One of the most celebrated, prolific, and unorthodox architects and designers of the 20th century, Eero Saarinen has become a beacon of American modernism. While famous for his sculptural and bold architecture, such as the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and the TWA Terminal at the JFK International Airport in New York, Eero Saarinen: Furniture for Everyman is the first monograph to focus exclusively on his furniture.

Published by Pointed Leaf Press, the book includes a preface by Florence Knoll and an essay by Saarinen’s protégé Niels Diffrient. Inside you'll find hundreds of rare and never-before-seen archival photographs of Saarinen, his friends and family, as well as advertisements, patent drawings and design sketches. It's a must-have for every modernist's library." The book is also listed on Amazon. Spy Vibers may remember Brian Lutz as the author of Knoll: A Modernist Universe
