Everyone knows tulips. They are the jewels among our flowers, a great joy to many of us. They are a great inspiration to many artists and designers, including Dutch designer Marco Manders. While thinking about alternative ideas for modern urban furniture, he was immensely inspired by the tulip. The result: the Tulpi, an urban chair in the shape of a tulip. With his innovative idea he produced a chair with an aesthetic value, as well as a user and environmental friendly product. The Tulpi offers the opportunity to fold the seat, enabling the user to open and close the Tulpi. Because of this interesting feature, the design prevents the chair from being exposed to outside elements like rain, bird droppings or leaves. The Tulpi can rotate around its axis at 360 degrees, which allows users to choose their own view.
