This pair set of rare upholstered swivel Tulip armchairs for Knoll International, designed by Eero Saarinen was part of the "Pedestal Collection" originally created for Knoll in 1957. Saarinen's intent was to clean up the "slum of legs" found under four legged tables and chairs.
The tulip set is includes 2 armchairs comprised of molded fiberglass shell seats supported on a aluminum stem and original seat pads consisting of ochre fabric, ready for new upholstery.
The Knoll sticker is found under the seat pad.
Very vintage condition, shell and base in great shape. As expected, signs of use commensurate with its age are evident.
