Inspired by Eero Saarinen, "Tulip Chair" 

Interesting Facts:

  • Was primarily designed as a chair to match the complementary dining table.
  • Chair is often considered "space age" for its futuristic use of curves and artifical materials. The design was popularized by its use on the original Star Trek television series in 1966-69.
  • Saarinen had hoped to produce the chair as a one piece unit made entirely of fiberglass, but this material was not able to support the base, and prototypes were prone to breakage. As a result, the base of the tulip chair is of cast aluminum with a rislan-coated finish to match the upper shell, giving the appearance of a single unit. The upper shell is molded fiberglass, with a reinforced, plastic bonded finish.

Dimensions: 50w x 56d x 80h cm
