Tulpi-design is based in Nieuwegein, the Netherlands, founded in April 2011 and owned by designer Marco Manders. Marco Manders started his business in graphic design almost thirty years ago. He gradually gained interest in product design. He entered his idea for the Tulpi-seat during a Dutch government pitch, an event where professionals were invited to enter their new design ideas for public space design. His entry was well received, but not the winner. By that time Manders had fallen in love with design for public spaces after which he decided to further develop and design the Tulpi-seat. The Tulpi-seat is designed to create more fun and color in our outdoor environments. The organic design of the chair is an ode to the Dutch national flower, the tulip. Tulpi's are high quality products: not only the exterior was a major focus point during the product development, we also put a lot of work into the ergonomic features. The Tulpi's constantly supports our lower back. Tulpi's are highly innovative: the folding element of the chair guarantees a dry and clean seat. During the Dutch Design week 2011 an independent jury concluded that the Tulpi richly qualifies for the predicate Good Industrial Design and awarded Tulpi with the special GIO Award for most Original Design and Good Industrial Design (GIO). And just this year he won the prestigious Golden A' Design Award for his design Tulpi-seat. Tulpi is a typical Dutch Design which can be characterized as: minimalistic, experimental, innovative, quirky and humorous. Marco Manders is currently working on more designs such as Tulpi-bin, Tulpi-seat-Chill, Tulpi-seat-Shine. Read Less
