The Saarinen dining table, widely known as Tulip table, was designed in 1957 by the Finnish-American architect and industrial designer Eero Saarinen. Due to its timeless design, the table has acquired an iconic status, and is considered to be one of the epitomes of midcentury design.
The Saarinen table design is available in a wide range of tops including white laminate, a selection of marble finishes, wood veneer, acrylic stone and lacquer. The base can be white or black. There is also a round version of this table, listed separately.
Please note that this table requires special delivery as the top is extremely heavy when marble is chosen. Our standard charge is for London, with ground floor and easy access. This standard delivery charge will be added automatically when you go through to the check out, but if you are not sure about access, please enquire. A site survey is available to check access for only £35*, which is refunded against an order. (*London and inside M25)Read more
QUICKSHIP: Please note that only the 198 cm with white base is available on quickship.
Eero Saarinen is a giant of 20th Century design and architecture, but it is the Tulip Tables designed for Knoll for which he usually remembered. Marble tops have 4 separate layers of a special polyester coating, to ensure that the marble remains pristine for many years, whilst the Rilsan coat on the cast aluminium bases is one of the most durable coatings available. You can choose between the classic shiny finish or the matt satin one for your Saarinen Tulip table.
