Eero Saarinen - The Tulip Chair

Eero Saarinen’s Tulip Chair design stemmed from the designer’s motivation to improve the aesthetic of the traditional chair. Describing chairs under tables as a ‘slum of legs’, the graceful Tulip Chair was a succinct design with only one supporting leg instead of the traditional four legs. Originally designed in 1958, the shape of the chair is organic and slender, like its name suggests, but the design was appreciated for its retro modern style.
