Knoll Saarinen Tulip Armchair with Blue Seat


This is an original Saarinen Tulip Swivel Armchair by Knoll, with a blue fabric seat.

Architect Eero Saarinen was a genius at creating expressive sculptural forms. From his TWA Terminal (now the TWA Hotel) at New York’s JFK Airport to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, there’s a magic in everything he created. The Saarinen Tulip Armchair (1956) began with his observation that “the underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world.”
Featuring a swivel seat, this chair stands on a gracefully shaped cast-aluminum base inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid.
Made in Italy.
