Designer Eero Saarinen vowed to address the "ugly, confusing, unrestful world" he observed underneath chairs and tables - the so-called "slum of legs." A five-year design investigation led him to the revolutionary Pedestal Collection, a distinct sculptural base inspired by a drop of liquid. The Saarinen Table has become a timeless modern classic in continuous production since 1956.
AUTHENTICITY The Knoll logo is located on the underside of the base. A nameplate with the KnollStudio logo and the signature of Eero Saarinen is also located on the underside of the top or on the top support plate.
