Product description

In 1957 the introduction of Eero Saarinen’s Pedestal Collection marked the entry of marble as a natural material in the Knoll catalogue. Sixty years later, the range of natural stones has been expanded to feature marble in striking and increasingly exclusive colors: precious Rosso Rubino and elegant Sahara Noir.

Concept

The furnishings created by Saarinen for Knoll, which include the famous, revolutionary Tulip collection from 1957, have become major design icons of the postwar era. In his approach to architecture and furniture design, Eero Saarinen combined essential simplicity and very striking formal invention. His collection of pieces with “chalice” legs, including low tables and dining tables, epitomizes his ideal of formal unity.
