In 1956 time magazine reported in its cover story, that Eero Saarinen was designing a collection, which he claimed would: "clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home! Saarinen highlighted that the clutter of table and chair legs created what he saw as a “confusing, unrestful world”. This resulted in his completion of the Pedestal table collection. In designing this dining table he reduced it to its simplest functional form. This cast aluminium base was inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid and the overall effect is elegant and clean and smooth-lined. The Pedestal collection was the winner of the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award.

Our version of this piece consists of a moulded pedestal base atop of which sits a round walnut veneer top.

Our products are reproduced to the style of the original design.
