The Tulip chair was designed by Eero Saarinen in 1955 and 1956 for the Knoll company of New York City. It was designed primarily as a chair to match the complementary dining table. The chair has the smooth lines of modernism and was experimental with materials for its time. The chair is considered a classic of industrial design.
The chair is often considered "space age" for its futuristic use of curves and artificial materials. The design was popularized by its use on the original Star Trek television series (1966-69) .
With the mid point of the last century came huge advances in material technology and manufacturing processes, new plastics, resins and fibreglass could be mass produced quickly, efficiently and with consistent results. These developments provided exciting opportunity in many areas; not least of all for furniture design and prompted a new era of industrial design.
In 1956 Eero Saarinen designed a complimentary range of tables and chairs which he named the Tulip range because of the slender, elegant stem like pedestals and organic shapes that typified the pieces. As with his namesake Eero Aarnios' designs the experimental use of materials and minimalist forms are often considered to be space age and their appeal has outlived the period in history from which they originated.
