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! ''The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world," explained Saarinen. This resulted in his completion of the Pedestal table collection. In designing this side/coffee table he reduced it to its simplest functional form.  The cast aluminium base was inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. 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 thin circular walnut veneer top.

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