Learn more about this product

The tulip chair was designed by Eero Saarinen between 1955 and 1956 for the company Knoll. It was intended to be complementary to the table of the same name. 

We can associate its soft and futuristic lines with the current of modernism and "space age". 


Learn more about this designer

Eero Saarinen, American architect and designer of Finnish origin, has been immersed in design and architecture since he was a child. Both of her parents were recognized and renowned in their work: her father Eliel was an architect and the director of the Cranbrook Academy of Art while her mother Loja was a textile designer. Arriving in the United States as a teenager, then studying at Yale in design and architecture, Eero Saarinen knew how to innovate after graduating and became the leader of the second generation of modernists in the field of architecture and design. This title was given to him following the observation of his works possessing forms and silhouettes never seen and created before. He pushed the limits of certain materials in order to create unique pieces that conform to his sense of personal aesthetics. This emancipation from the codes of design was made possible following the contact that Eero Saarinen had with many designers and architects such as Florence Knoll or Charles and Ray Eames.


Learn more about the brand

Knoll is an American office furniture and equipment company.

Based in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, it was founded in 1938 by Hans Knoll, an entrepreneur of German origin. With his wife Florence, they created one of the most creative and prolific societies of the post-war period. The "Knoll style" was born: they imposed their vision of the layout thanks to the "Planning Unit", a unique service of its kind for the time, combining interior architecture, design, production, textiles, graphics. After Hans' death in 1955, Florence replaced her husband at the head of the company, to leave it in 1965.

Like Herman Miller, Knoll's importance in 20th century design was considerable. Knoll worked with renowned architects and designers such as Eero Saarinen, Isamu Noguchi, Frank Gehry and Ross Lovegrove.

Many pieces of furniture made by Knoll are now part of design history.
