Tulip Table by Eero Saarinen for Knoll


This iconic pedestal table from the Tulip collection was created by Eero Saarinen in the 1950s and took five years to perfect. Its base is reminiscent of a tulip flower or stemmed wineglass, providing a peaceful interior without obstructing viewing lines. 

Founded in New York in 1938 by 26 year old German Hans Knoll (1914-1955), Knoll International was established with a focus on quality, thanks in part to Hans' father Walter Knoll, a revered furniture maker and modernist. After Hans' untimely death, his wife Florence Knoll continued to lead and design for the company, collaborating with renowned designers including Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Richard Schultz, and Harry Bertoia.

Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was a renowned Finnish-American architect whose innovative designs greatly influenced the postwar architecture of a progressive and optimistic America. He was highly sought after by major corporations like IBM and General Motors, and his signature style became synonymous with these companies' identities. From corporate buildings to household interiors, Saarinen's work left a lasting impact on the aesthetic landscape of the United States during the 1950s and 1960s.
