Description from Design Within Reach

In a 1956 cover story in Time magazine, Eero Saarinen said that “the underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world,” and that he was designing a collection to “clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home.” Later that year, he completed his Pedestal Table (1956) with its cast aluminum base inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. His now-iconic Pedestal Table is made with abrasion-resistant Rilsan® finish on the base and a tabletop made of solid marble, wood veneer or laminate. Each piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Eero Saarinen’s signature. These are authentic Pedestal Tables by Knoll. Base made in China; tabletop made in Italy or U.S.A., depending on material. Cast aluminum base with Rilsan finish; bevel-edged top in marble, laminate or wood veneer. SOLID MARBLE: Arabescato (polished or satin finish), Verde Alpi (green with black and white veining), Extra White (pure white with very faint traces of grey). LAMINATE: MDF with bevel-edged laminate. WOOD VENEER: MDF with cathedral-grain pattern of wood veneer in oak, walnut, cherry, ebonized walnut (walnut veneer with nearly black stain), Pau Ferro rosewood.
