The Tulip chair is an artistic piece, as the seemingly simple structure echoes the form of a sculpture. Designed by Eero Saarinen, this Knoll chair is one of the greatest examples of midcentury design. Saarinen quoted that his personal aim was to create the chair as all one thing. The chair is part of the Pedestal collection, which also includes the famous Tulip table.
The Tulip Chair is not only an aesthetically enhancing product, it offers an effortless sense of comfort due to the shell, which is welcoming to the shape of the body. There are also many options available regarding the colour and upholstery of the Tulip Chair. These include the choice of shell colour from black or white, and either full upholstery or a seat-pad, upholstered in fabric. The base of the chair is made of Rilsan-coated cast aluminium, and the shell is made of moulded fibreglass reinforced plastic bonded finish. There are more fabric options to choose from then what we are able to show on the website. Please get in touch with us if you would be interested in hearing more.
This is an authorised original Saarinen chair from a genuine Knoll dealer. The KnollStudio logo and the Eero Saarinen signature are located on the underside of the base. Each chair comes with a Knoll certificate of authenticity.
