Eero Saarinen, oval marble dining table in black 1955 for Knoll International
Eero Saarinen created the tulip table - the first one-legged table in the history of furniture design - in the 1950s with the intention of doing something against what he considered the "ugly and troubled world" that existed in the forest of chair and table legs to be found with American dining tables. Instead of the usual four legs, he used for he Oval Tulip dining table and other tables in the pedestal Collection, a single pillar, which should ensure formal peace and a clean design. The result is the elegant Saarinen tulip tables.
This table dates from 2019, near to new - very nice condition! Knoll International Label underneath, etc.
