Overview


Saarinen Tulip Armchair. Inspired by the designer: Eero Saarinen.


Description


In the 1940s Eero Saarinen developed the Tulip Chair as part of his research of "organic furniture.”  The Tulip Chair and the corresponding pedestal table and other furniture he developed, represents the peak of Eero Saarinen's career in which these lasting icons of modern classic furniture were brought to the forefront. Eero Saarinen’s ability to blend color, form and materials was remarkable. The Tulip Chair from his pedestal collection is a reflection of this ability in this timeless classic.

Eero Saarinen designed the Tulip Chair (1957) at the peak of his career. His work in the 1940s began focusing on "organic furniture" in which he aimed to restore formal order to the typical interior setting. His vision was to free the interior space from the "sea of legs" that he saw creating "...an unpleasant, confused and restless atmosphere." The Eero Saarinen Tulip Chair represents Saarinen's synergy of that vision and its embodiment in a tangible form.
