Eero Saarinen said that “the underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world” and he was designing a new collection to “clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home”.
Later that year, he completed his Pedestal Table (1956), whose form was inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. This iconic table features a cast-aluminium base with abrasion-resistant Rislan finish and a solid marble tabletop.
An original, authentic product made by Knoll, each is stamped with the Knoll Studio logo and Eero Saarinen’s signature.
