Knoll Saarinen Tulip Round Dining table

Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was part of the Modernist movement and one of the most prolific industrial designers of the 20th century. A prestigious and well-respected designer during his lifetime, he was posthumously awarded the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal. Saarinen ingeniously solved a very common design dilemma when he created the Knoll dining table in a ‘tulip’ design.

Famous for its tulip pedestal shape, this Knoll dining table allows for the legs of the dining chairs and the legs of those those sat around to all fit smoothly underneath. It is awkward and frustrating when empty chairs don’t fit underneath a dining table and when you bump your knees into another diner sat at the table or into the table legs.

The Knoll dining table immediately keeps things from getting too overcrowded underneath the table with the sleek design. The table doesn’t take up a lot of visual space and so it will blend in with the surroundings beautifully.

When talking about the Knoll dining table Saarinen noted: ‘The undercarriage of chairs and tables in a typical interior makes an ugly, confusing, unrestful world. I wanted to clear up the slum of legs. I wanted to make the chair all one thing again.’

As well as the Knoll dining table, Saarinen’s tulip pedestal tables come in a coffee table and side table size. These tables have thin oval or round surfaces and multiple marble, laminate and wood finishes, akk with a luxurious bevelled edge.

The marble version of the Knoll dining table has a transparent polyester coating to give protection from stains. You can also choose from either a white or black epoxy-resin coated pedestal base. The flower-like tulip chairs fit beautifully with the Knoll dining table.

The Knoll dining tables from Pink Apple come with Eero Saarinen’s signature underneath or on top of the support plate and the Knoll Studio nameplate and the Knoll logo underneath the base so you know that you are investing in an original.

A world-renowned favourite to this day and popular with interior designers on Instagram, the Knoll dining table remains fashionable and highly desirable.
