Created in 1957, the Saarinen Tulip Table envelopes the thought and theory behind one of the 20th century's great architects. Constructed of cast aluminum, the Saarinen table flows from side to side in a fluid exchange of lines. The Saarinen table shown here is a favorite as it can be used in a variety of spaces, but is most commonly used as a large coffee table.
Eero Saarinen’s introduction of the Pedestal Series was a radical solution to what he saw as a “slum of legs” problem in chair and table design. Over three years, from 1954 – 1957, Eero Saarinen worked on the Pedestal Series trying to come up with a perfect balance between art and technology. The optimization of the Saarinen table base was revolutionary, but difficult to attain due to the materials that were available at the time. Though his first choice was plastic (as he was striving to use a single material), he subsequently used cast aluminum and fiberglass for the chairs.
Our Saarinen tables are an exacting reproduction of the original Saarinen table. Absolute attention is paid to the workmanship of the stone, the unique knife edge, and base creating a modern classic table meant to last for years. The Saarinen table base is available in matte white or black, glossy white or black, or matte silver. The Saarinen table base is finished with a transparent protective finish to help it resist scratches, stains and scuffs. The Saarinen table top is available in a wide variety of stones and laminates, including the ever-popular white Carrara and black Marquina.
