Though it epitomises 1960s styling Eero Saarinen's Tulip Chair was actually designed as a project between 1955 and 1957. Still manufactured by Knoll this armchair looks as equally stylish today as it did back then and goes particularly well with the Tulip Table.

The mouded aluminium base and moulded fibreglass reinforced plastic shell in white/black completes its classic look whilst the upholstered inner shell and seat cushion in a range of Kvadrat fabrics provide additional comfort. Further options include a fixed or swivel seat position.
