Tulip Dining Set White Fiberglass, 36″ Table & 3 Armchairs White Cashmere Cushion
Eero designed the chairs first in the mid 50’s and then the table in the early 60’s. The Tulip dining series was recognized with multiple design awards shortly after its inception. Today, it is widely recognized as the modern classic icon in dining. Clean, modern classics. Reproductions when made of fiberglass and cast aluminum, like the original, last generations.
Eero Saarinen designed the Tulip Arm chair in 1955 followed by the table to compliment, in 1964. Both the table and the original chairs were constructed of Fiberglass. This provided longevity and the ability to match the tone and sheen of the set. The chair cushions featured wool fabric. True to the original, the Kardiel reproduction features chairs and the table both constructed of fiberglass. The seat cushion is covered in wool fabric. This is worth noting as the majority of reproductions in the Tulip Series, craft the body of the chairs of plastic and cover the cushion in synthetic fabric.

The Tulip Chair went on to star in none other than Gene Rodenberry’s Star Trek between 1966 and 1969. The bridge chairs were tulip chairs, with a slight modification. After the series ended, a few were salvaged. One recently auctioned for more than $18,000.
Eero Saarinen born 1910 was a Finnish American architect and industrial designer famous for his ability to master varying style. For example, he was accomplished in both simple, sweeping, arching structural curves and seemingly the opposite side of the spectrum, machine-like rationalism.
He designed many important pieces of furniture including one of the most famous, the “Womb” chair and ottoman (1948). The “Tulip” or “Pedestal” group (1956), features side and arm chairs, dining, coffee and side tables, as well as a stool. Eero’s designs were extensive, all were highly successful except for the “Grasshopper” lounge chair, which, although in production through 1965, was not a big hit.
