Tulip arm chair by Eero Saarinen 1953-58

Eero Saarinen vowed to address the “ugly, confusing, unrestful world” he observed underneath chairs and tables -- the so-called "slum of legs." A five-year design investigation led him to the revolutionary Pedestal Collection, including the Tulip Chair, introduced in 1958.
