One of the most important designs in the furniture industry is, without a doubt, the Eero Saarinen Tulip Chair. This classic design was crafted by trained sculptor and architect, Eero Saarinen in 1956 and has won several design awards including The Museum of Modern Art Award in 1969, the Federal Award for Industrial Design in 1969 and Design Center Stuttgart Award in 1962. Saarinen, born in Finland in 1910, aimed for a design that used a simplistic approach, but made it durable and kept the setting in which the chair would be used as a forethought. The Eero Saarinen Tulip Chair is a modern classic furniture piece that belongs to the pedestal series, but distinguishes itself because of its almost contradictory simplicity and sturdiness. The Tulip Chair looks simplistic, but it offers a sturdy base that will last for years.
Eero Saarinen envisioned modern rooms filled with less clutter, he wanted to create a chair that removed the excessive legs that inundated rooms with traditional four-legged chairs. The Eero Saarinen Tulip Chair features a single leg that serves as a base that holds up the chair and the weight placed on it, effectively getting rid of the additional three legs that traditional chairs have. Saarinen’s vision of a minimalistic setting, without clutter or excess, is defining of modern classic furniture and the Tulip Chair is the perfect example of the shift from traditional to modern furniture. This excellent chair complements any room that it is placed in; it is perfect for the dining room table, the kitchen, the living room, office settings, practically anywhere.
