How do I recognise an original Saarinen Tulip Armchair?

The Knoll logo and the signature of the designer are stamped on the underside of the base.

Design Story

With the Tulip chair Eero Saarinen developed the first one-legged chair in the history of furniture design. The Knoll Saarinen Tulip Chair was created in the 1950s as part of a furniture collection featuring objects with a single, columnar leg - the so-called Pedestal Collection and a collection which also includes numerous Saarinen tables and the Saarinen Tulip Armchair. As with the Tulip Chair the Knoll Tulip Armchair features a central column of heavy duty die-cast aluminium on top of which rests the organically curved seat shell: a design principle which also gives the armchair its characteristic tulip shape. The original Saarinen Tulip Chair and Armchair are produced exclusively by Knoll International, and to aid identification and ensure you are buying the quality product you expect, the bottom of every chair is embossed with the Knoll Studio logo and the signature of Eero Saarinen. The Knoll Tulip Armchair is available in a range of colours and optionally with seat cushions or fully upholstered.
