Eero Saarinen Tulip Side Chair-Platinum
Aluminum base, fiberglass, upholstery
Made in USA by Knoll
In 1956, Eero Saarinen addressed the ?"ugly, confusing, unrestful world resulting from the slum of legs underneath typical chairs and tables."
In 1957, Knoll unveiled the Pedestal Collection by Eero Saarinen, known today as the Tulip Collection, which has evolved into a symbol of mid-century modern design and a mainstay of the Knoll design legacy.
Son of the celebrated architect Eliel Saarinen, Eero was classically trained in sculpture and architecture. He collaborated with Charles Eames in 1937 which led to the creation of the Organic Armchair. Saarinen continued to develop great designs, all for Knoll. Among the many buildings for which he is known are Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C., and the TWA terminal at Kennedy International Airport in New York.
