Saarinen Tulip Armchair Fully Upholstered
Eero Saarinen called himself a form giver, and everything he designed from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to his Womb Chair to his Pedestal Table had a strong sculptural quality. The underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world, said Saarinen. In a 1956 cover story in Time magazine, he announced that he was designing a collection to clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home. Later that year, he completed his Pedestal Table and Tulip Chair Collection (1956) with its cast aluminum base inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. The seat swivels for easy entrance to or exit from a table. Each chair is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Eero Saarinens signature. This is the authentic Tulip Collection produced by Knoll. Made in Italy. The Tulip Collection is Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified.
