A One-legged Chair
The puristically designed Tulip Chair is reminiscent of the shape of a tulip, as per its name, and combines modernity with classic Scandinavian design. Eero Saarinen describes the background to the design of the Tulip Chair as such: ‘I wanted to clean up the clutter of legs.
I wanted to make something unified again out of an armchair.’Thus the four-legged chair as it was commonly known became a one-legged one without further ado.
Plastic Chair in Multiple Variations
It rests on a trumpet foot cast from light metal and coated with Rilsan on its surface. Furthermore, the chair is available in different variations: first you have the choice between a chair with armrests or a design without.
