Miniature Tulip Chair

Designer: Eero Saarinen

sKnoll, Vitra

This Miniature Tulip Chair, the desktop sized version of Eero Sarrinen’s iconic Tulip Chair, is part of a miniature collection of the most important classics of modern furniture history The award-winning Tulip chair was designed in 1956 as part of an exercise to clarify form and help alleviate Sarrinen’s concerns of clutter.

The construction, materials and colours correspond perfectly to the historical Vitra Design Museum Collection original and in some cases were assisted by the designers to develop the miniatures.

The miniatures are valuable collector items and the best alternative if you can’t afford the real thing!

The Sarrinen Tulip makes and appearance in Star Trek Strange New Worlds.
