Description

The Tulip table by Eero Saarinen is one of the most well-known pieces of Finnish design. With a name inspired by the table’s one-legged structure that resembles a flower, Tulip is not only a dining table but also an eye-catching design icon.

The table has a round top made of white Arabesco marble characterised by dark grey veins and sometimes random green veins – due to the natural material, each top's hue, veining and marks are unique. The table top is coated with protective polyester that also gives the top a beautiful satin finish.

Saarinen designed the Tulip table in 1957 for the American furniture manufacturer Knoll. The table is part of Saarinen’s Pedestal collection that consists of single-legged furniture created as a protest to the ”ugly, confusing, unrestful world” of traditional furniture legs. The iconic collection exudes an air of mid-century modernism that, to this day, feels fresh and original.

Eero Saarinen

Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was a Finnish-American architect and designer whose neo-futuristic designs earned him a place among the most significant names of modern American architecture. Saarinen became famous in 1940 when he and Charles Eames won the design competition Organic Design in Home Furnishings arranged by MoMA New York. As a designer, his best-known pieces include the Womb chair and the Tulip furniture, both designed for Knoll, and as an architect, he created significant American landmarks including the Dulles International Airport in Washington DC, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and the TWA Flight Center in New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

A child of the Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen and textile artist Loja Saarinen, Eero Saarinen migrated from Finland to Michigan’s Bloomfield Hills with his family at the age of 13. Saarinen studied sculpture in Paris, architecture at Yale University and design at Michigan’s Cranbrook Academy of Art, where he became friends with Charles Eames and Florence Knoll. Eero and his father Eliel both worked as teachers at Cranbook, and together with Robert Swansen, they established the architectural office Saarinen, Swansen and Associates. In 1950, Saarinen founded his own office in Bloomfield Hills where he worked until his death in 1961.
