Saarinen Tulip Dining Tables
1956 Saarinen Tulip Dining Tables
Eero Saarinen 1956
With the Pedestal Collection, Eero Saarinen resolved the 'ugly, confusing, unrestful world' underneath tables and chairs. The collection is a defining accomplishment of modern design and a timeless addition to your home—a true classic.
The Saarinen dining/meeting tables are available with round or oval tops at dining height. The bevelled-edged tops are available in 30mm thick satin-smooth White-core laminate or 20mm thick polyester-coated marble. The 120 and 137cm diam and oval tops are also available in timber veneer.
Finish designer Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) graduated from Yale School of Architecture, joining his father’s Ann Arbor practice to become Saarinen and Saarinen. He taught design at the Cranbrook Academy, the birthplace of American modernism, and had a long career designing for Knoll, which produced his iconic Womb and Tulip chairs. His TWA terminal in New York is a landmark mid-century modern building, recently converted to a hotel.
Knoll products are defined by a distinct modern sensibility. From classics by the likes of Mies van der Rohe to ground-breaking designs by contemporary creatives including Marc Newson, David Adjaye, Barber Osgerby and Rem Koolhaas.
