Description

Architecturally designed.

Architect Eero Saarinen was a genius at creating expressive sculptural forms. From his TWA Terminal (now the TWA Hotel) at New York’s JFK Airport to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to his Pedestal Table (1956), there’s a magic in everything he created. The table began with his observation that “the underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world,” and as he explained in a 1956 Time magazine cover story, he was designing a new collection to “clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home.” Later that year, he completed the Pedestal Table, which stands on a gracefully shaped cast-aluminum base inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. This is the authentic Pedestal Table by Knoll; it’s stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Eero Saarinen’s signature. Tabletop made in Italy or U.S.A., depending on material.



Marvelous marble.

Italian stone masters carefully select marble with the best composition and veining for Saarinen Pedestal Tables – each of which has unique markings that make it one of a kind. The marble is finished in a glossy or satin polyester coating that protects against stains. Additional materials and colors are available at DWR Studios or by calling us at 1.800.944.2233.

  • This is an authentic Knoll Saarinen Table.
  • Available with wood veneer, laminate or marble top.
  • The unique veining of Italian marble makes each table one of a kind.
