“Chairs Jim, but not as we know them”

The Tulip chair was designed by Eero Saarinen in 1955 and 1956 for the Knoll company of New York City. It was designed primarily as a chair to match the complementary dining table. The chair has the smooth lines of modernism and was experimental with materials for its time. The chair is considered a classic of industrial design.

The chair is often considered “space age” for its futuristic use of curves and artificial materials. The design was popularized by its use on the original Star Trek television series (1966–69).

The Tulip range are one of the many designs that we have chosen to feature in the forthcoming 3rd Element brochure.
