Design Story

Eero Saarinen created the Tulip table - the first one-legged table in the history of furniture design - in the 1950s with the intention of doing something against what he considered the "ugly and troubled world" that existed in the forest of chair and table legs to be found with American dining tables. Instead of the usual four legs, he used for he Oval Tulip dining table and other tables in the Pedestal Collection, a single pillar, which should ensure formal peace and a clean design. The result is the elegant Saarinen tulip tables, a collection which through their organic, curved shape set clear and harmonious accents in any conceivable environment. In addition to the Knoll Saarinen dining table oval, which is available in two sizes and with an oval tabletop in different materials, the Pedestal Collection features numerous dining, coffee and side tables and the matching Knoll Tulip Chairs.
