Tulip round dining table by Eero Saarinen for Knoll.

The Tulip round dining table is a design classic. With the Pedestal Collection, Eero Saarinen vowed to eliminate the "slum of legs" found under chairs and tables with four legs. He drew on his early training as a sculptor, refining his designs through to full scale models, endlessly modifying the shape with clay.

'What interests me is when and where to use these structural plastic shapes. Probing even more deeply into different possibilities one finds many different shapes are equally logical—some ugly, some exciting, some earthbound, some soaring. The choices really become a sculptor’s choice.'

The Tulip round dining table is available with black or white base made from heavy moulded cast aluminium painted with Rilsan high performance polymer coating. The top is available in either bevel-edged white laminate, wood veneer or marble in six different finishes. Finishes are available to download from Product downloads (please note finish colours are only intended as a rough guide as marble is a natural material and each table is unique).

The coated or satin marble top finish is only applicable to marble top finishes. 

The following models are available on a Quickship 3 week delivery time: 91dia/107dia/120dia/137dia table top with white laminate top and white Rislan base.

Example shown features the shiny marble finish. Marble top also comes in satin finish. Please enquire for further information. 

Please note: Due to a shortage of materials, Knoll are currently unable to produce this design in White marble. Please enquire for further information.
