Eero S. Tulip Armchair

The popular Tulip Armchair, inspired by the petals of the flower, expresses the designer’s vision of simple and functional furniture. Finnish born Eero Saarinen had an ambition to free homes from the “slum of legs” by creating a single elegant stand. The minimalistic look of the chair and its great comfort qualities are the result of S.’s extensive technical knowledge in working with fibreglass. For over 50 years the iconic Tulip Armchair has received much acclaim and numerous design awards from esteemed art institutions like the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Design Centre in Stuttgart and the Federal Award for Industrial Design.

ItaliaDesigns produces the classic design with great precision detail. The stable structure consists of a lightly coated metal alloy foot and a shell made of a hand-moulded fibreglass. The seat and cushion are available in a choice of colour; the cushion comes in quality cashmere, fabric, classic leather or premium leather.

About the Designer

Eero S.

Eero S.

Considered one of the masters of American 20th century architecture and design, Eero Saarinen was originally born in Finland before moving to Michigan with his family at the tender age of 13. Influenced heavily by his art-teaching father, Saarinen eventually incurred fame for an inclusive approach and ability to vary his style according to the demands of the project.

Saarinen’s eclectic forms of Modernist vision can be best interpreted by his first-hand experience of such diverse cultural ideologies, amplified by time spent travelling in North Africa, the studying of sculpture at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris and his graduation from architecture at Yale. Lauded for his furniture design and work with Charles Eames, Saarinen is still celebrated internationally to this day for works that include the remodelling of the Swedish National Theatre in Helsinki and his design of the Washington Dulles International Airport.
