Florence Knoll was one of the great entrepreneurs of mid-century modern design. One of her most enduring projects was this marble dining table created for Knoll by designer Eero Saarinen, who vowed to address the "ugly, confusing, unrestful world" he observed underneath chairs and tables - a so-called "slum of legs."A five-year design investigation led him to create the revolutionary Pedestal collection, first introduced in 1956. A hero product of the collection is this simple yet elegant Tulip Dining Table, whose sweeping silhouette provides the perfect antithesis to the typical clutter found under chairs and tables. The sturdy and sculptural black coated aluminium base sweeps elegantly from the floor to support a uniquely veined Italian Nero Marquina marble top, which is sealed with a transparent polyester coating to provide a stain-resistant and wipe-clean finish. The Tulip Dining Table with a Nero Marquina marble top and black base is an icon of mid-century design, and is still to this day manufactured exclusively by Knoll and carries Saarinen's signature as a mark of authenticity.
