An eye-catching design for outdoor seating by Netherlands-based designer Marco Manders that pays tribute to the Dutch national flower, the tulip, and adds a burst of color to any environment. The Tulpi-seat, with full 360 degree rotation, folds automatically into it's tulip shape when the occupant gets up guaranteeing a clean and dry seat for the next user.
Everyone knows tulips. They are the jewels among our flowers, a great joy to many of us. A typical Dutch icon. They are a great inspiration to many artists and designers, including me. And I want to sit on a clean and dry seat in the public space. Because of this interesting feature, the design prevents the Tulpi from being exposed to outside elements like rain, bird droppings or leaves.Tulpi-Seat Chair is a Golden A' Design Award Winner in the Street Furniture Design Category, 2014–2015.
