Tulip Stool by Eero Saarinen for Knoll

About the Item

The original 1970s Tulip Stool by Eero Saarinen for Knoll is a celebrated piece of mid-century modern design, characterized by its sleek and minimalist aesthetic. The stool features a distinctive single-legged pedestal base made from sturdy cast aluminum, which is finished in a smooth white lacquer. This elegant, sculptural form eliminates the clutter of traditional four-legged seating, embodying Saarinen's quest for simplicity and his desire to create a unified, harmonious interior. The seat of the Tulip Stool is crafted with a black, high-quality upholstered leather style cushion, providing both comfort and a striking visual contrast to the white base. The black seat is meticulously tailored, adding a touch of sophistication while ensuring durability and ease of maintenance. This stool not only serves as a functional seating solution but also as a timeless piece of art that seamlessly fits into various interior styles, from contemporary to classic. Renowned for its innovative design and enduring appeal, the original Tulip Stool by Eero Saarinen for Knoll remains a sought-after icon in modern furniture collections worldwide. Photographed with Herman Miller wire rocker by Charles and Ray Eames for scale.
