Original Tulip dining table in very good condition. Designed by Eero Saarinen. Manufactured by Knoll International. This particular table is manufactured in the 1970s. This table has a white coated metal base and a white laminated top. The underside of the base is embossed with the Knoll I International logo. The Saarinen Tulip Table by Knoll was a revolutionary modern dining table because it stood in stark contrast to the pedestal tables that came before this groundbreaking design. Determined to “clear up the slum of legs,” that defined most dining table designs, Eero Saarinen was said to have taken his idea for a different kind of pedestal base from the shape formed by a drop of viscous liquid. Today the Knoll Saarinen Round Dining Table remains possibly the most iconic modern dining table in the world. Born to world famous parents, architect and Cranbrook Academy of Art director Eliel Saarinen and textile artist Loja Saarinen, Eero Saarinen was surrounded by design his whole life. It came as no surprise that Eero was helping his father design furniture and fixtures for the Cranbrook campus by the time he was in his teens. In 1929 Eero left for Paris where he studied sculpture before enrolling in the Yale architecture program the following year. In 1934, he returned to Michigan to teach at Cranbrook, work on furniture designs, and practice architecture with his father.
