Saarinen Tulip Side Chair
Since the dawn of man, the greatest inventions have been those that solve problems. For this reason, Eero Saarinen's Tulip Armless Chair is considered one of the greatest contributions to 20th century design. Designed in 1956, the Tulip Chair was born out of Saarinen's dissatisfaction with what he called the "slum of legs" under most dining tables. Inmod's Saarinen Tulip Chair is an accurate, fully customizable reproduction of Eero Saarinen's Tulip Armless Chair which faithfully replicates the definitive form & proportions, swivel functionality, and commercial-grade quality of the original.
The Tulip Armless Chair, revolutionary and ultra-modern for its time, integrated a swivel pedestal base, and treated it as a definitive design element rather than as an afterthought. The base was designed as an extension to the seat and as a whole, a single organic form provided a sculptural yet functional alternative to the four-legged dining chair.
The genius within the invention of the Tulip Armless Chair is typical of Eero Saarinen's work. A Finnish/American architect, industrial designer and teacher (having mentored husband and wife team Charles & Ray), his contributions to 20th century design are countless. His Tulip series is his most recognized and sought-after contribution to furniture design, and it received the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award. Each piece within the collection has become a mid-century modern design icon, and has maintained widespread popularity throughout the world.
