First Generation Tulip Armchairs, Eero Saarinen for Knoll Associates, circa 1959Automaton Vintage Furnishings
First generation set of four Tulip armchairs by Eero Saarinen which were part of the "Pedestal Collection" originally created for Knoll Associates in 1957. The early Knoll Associates labels indicates these were produced in the earlier years of this design and make it a great choice for collectors, designers, and those who value authenticity and early original examples of great designs like this.
This set of armchairs are fabricated of molded fiberglass shell seats supported on a white painted aluminum stem and original rust colored wool-mix. The original Knoll Associates stickers are found under each seat pad.
