This is a Scale model of the Tulip Chair by Eero Saarinen, designed in 1956. At the time plastic technology prevented Saarinen from achieving a single form chair. With the pedestal Tulip Chair, however, he did achieve his objective of cleaning up the "slum of legs" in domestic interiors.


The distinguishing features of the Tulip Chair have been replicated here into a Vitra Miniature edition of the full-sized original. As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection miniature editions of classic chairs were produced to celebrate modern furniture design history.

The construction, materials and colours correspond to the historical Vitra Design Museum collection originals, right down to the last detail. Because they are so true to the originals, the miniatures are not only valuable collector's items, but also ideal illustrative materials for universities, design colleges and architects.
