Winning the MoMa Design Award in 1969, the Knoll Tulip Armchair, designed by Eero Saarinen, is a modern design icon. Ergonomic in form, a moulded Fiberglass shell with a white Rislan coated finish supports the bodies natural shape with ease. The armchair works equally well as a dining chair or as an occasional chair, making a statement in any situation it is placed in. The armchair is fully upholstered in a range of hardwearing yet beautifully textured fabrics. Fully upholstered and partly upholstered chairs without armrests are also available within the Knoll Tulip collection.
Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was incredibly influential in shaping the postwar American modern design movement. Born in Finland Eero Saarinen was the son of architect Eliel Saarinen, one of the founders of the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
