Saarinen Tulip Armless Chair
Eero Saarinen called himself a â€œform giver,â€ and everything he designed â€“ from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to his Wombâ„¢ Chair to his Pedestal Table â€“ had a strong sculptural quality. â€œThe underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world,â€ said Saarinen. In a 1956 cover story in Time magazine, he announced that he was designing a collection to â€œclear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home.â€ 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 Saarinenâ€™s signature. This is the authentic Tulip Collection produced by Knoll. Made in Italy.
