20% off the Saarinen Tulip Collection

Eero Saarinen Tulip Collection of Tables and Chair for Knoll Studio

In designing the Pedestal Collection - which over time has now become known as the Tulip Collection - Eero Saarinen sought to address the "ugly, confusing, unrestful world resulting from the slum of legs underneath typical chairs and tables". He sent letters to Hans Knoll in November 1954 committing to the development of a new series for production, saying "I have been working evenings and have a whole wall full of sketches!" In June 1955, concerned that Saarinen's enormous workload would delay the development, Hans assigned Don Petitt from Knoll's staff to work exclusively on the series. The two men got on so well that Petitt worked with Saarinen until March 1957, when the collection was unveiled at a preview in Knoll's New York showroom to selected architects and invited press. A total of seven patents for the tables and chairs were granted between 1958 and 1961 and the collection has evolved into a symbol of award-winning mid-century modern design and a mainstay of the Knoll design legacy.
