Considered one of the great icons of design, Eero Saarinen’s multi award-winning Tulip Armchair is characterised by the instantly recognisable cup-shaped frame, emphasised by the reduction of support to a single stem and its distinctive Ultrasuede upholstery.

Designed in 1957 as part of the famous Pedestal collection that vowed to address the ‘ugly, confusing, unrestful world’ underneath tables and tables, the Tulip Armchair consists of a sweeping swivel base of die-cast aluminium lacquered in black and is coated with a protective Rilsan finish.

Crafted from moulded fiberglass, the distinctively shaped seat shell is accented with a removable foam seat pad, upholstered in Knoll’s premium Ultrasuede fabric: a soft, plush material that is the first of its kind to use a partially plant-based polyester.

A truly iconic design by Eero Saarinen, the Tulip Armchair is an unmistakable piece that is sure to accent any space with modernity and style.


  • Iconic design by Eero Saarinen and manufactured to this day by Knoll
  • Upholstered in Knoll’s premium Ultrasuede fabric in a selection of colours
  • Chic black swivel base for easy movement
