The Tulip Chair (Tulip chair) was designed in 1955 and 1956 by Eero Saarinen for Knoll in New York City.
It was designed primarily for the "Complementary Dining Table" to supplement chairs. The chair has the smooth lines of modernism and was experimental with materials for its time. Today he is considered a classic of industrial design.
A great use the Tulip Chair got in Science Fiction series, such as in the TV series Star Trek (1966-1969).
