Eero Saarinen Tulip Chair

The innovative Tulip Chair is an organic and ergonomic piece of design history. The world's first one-legged chair, the Tulip Chair changed the future of furniture design when it was introduced in the late 1950s. Echoing the curves of the human body, its sweeping fibreglass frame offers supreme comfort and support.This is further accentuated by the padded upholstery, available in up to seven colours. The unique pedestal base provides stability as well as a distinctive aesthetic, and can be swivelled.

The story behind the Eero Saarinen Tulip Chair

Designed in 1958, the Tulip Chair is part of Saarinen's award winning 'Pedestal Collection'. This series addressed what Saarinen saw as the 'slum of legs' under tables. By getting rid of the traditional four legs, Saarinen reduced clutter and gave people more room to stretch out. The collection was awarded the Museum of Modern Art Award, 1969, Federal Award for Industrial Design, 1969, and Design Center Stuttgart Award, 1962. Its futuristic design resulted in the Tulip Chair being used in the original Star Trek series.

Eero Saarinen

1910 (Finland) -1961 (United States)

A Finnish American architect and industrial designer, Eero Saarinen took a sculptural approach to furniture design. He was a perfectionist who was obsessed with getting the perfect curve or line, often building hundreds of models to ensure he got it right. His attention to detail paid off. His work is now iconic and includes design classics such as the Tulip Armchair, the Tulip Table and the Womb Chair.

"Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan."
