From Modernism 101. The winning entries in the legendary 1940 Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) competition which introduced the furniture designs of Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen to the world. In 1940, these two Cranbrook partners stunned the judges at the MoMA competition for Home Furnishings with their Seating and Living Room designs—and the rest is history. Important early document of the partnership that eventually spawned the much-loved designs for Herman Miller and Knoll.
