tulips

Monday, 17 January 2011

Designed by Eero Saarinen in 1956, the Tulip is a single-legged chair made from fibreglass-reinforced resin.  In his purist approach to architecture and interior design, Finnish-born Saarinen sought the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution within an overall unity of design.  To that end, he designed the Tulip in terms of its setting, rather than a particular shape;  which is somewhat ironic as its the Tulip's shape, in our opinion, which has lead it to become one of the great design classics.
