There’s an ongoing debate in the Sci Fi community regarding certain chairs used on set of the original Star Trek series. These chairs, modified by set designers working on the Starship Enterprise, may (or may not) be classic Burke reinterpretations of Eero Saarinen’s Tulip chairs from 1955-56. In any case, it goes to show how seamlessly mid-century modern design fits in the imagined realm of science fiction.
