Knoll Petal Tables

Richard Schultz designed the Petal Table to accompany the Bertoia Chairs.

The tops on these tables are made of eight petals, which are mounted on a beautifully crafted cast aluminium. Schultz was inspried by Queen Anne's Lace, a weed that grows near his house in Pennsylvania. Each cluster of flowers is supported on its own stern.

By making a table in this manner there is no need for a ring support, and each petal is independant which allows the table to expand and contract with the weather.

The table was introduced by Knoll in Los Angeles in 1960 and was immediately made part of the MoMA Design Collection.
