In the 1950s, architect and designer Eero Saarinen set forth a goal, to create new meaning and visual appeal to chairs and tables, through sculpting concepts and techniques. He set out to resolve the confusing nature created by the underside of typical chairs and tables and the void they created in an increasingly unrestful world. The Tulip Style Swivel Lounge Chair, originally designed as part of his famous pedestal collection in 1956 was truly a functional work of art. It featured a sculptural continuous seat and back which rested on a curved tapered base that became a key character trait of the pedestal series. This inspired commercial-grade reproduction features a fiberglass seat and base, and a removable upholstered fabric seat for added comfort.
