Brief History

Back in 1955, Saarinen set out to get rid of “the slum of legs” under typical rectangular dining tables all over the world. No easy task! After careful research and experimentation, he came up with the first pedestal table ever. 

The premise of the uncluttered Tulip Table reduced a table’s four legs to an aerodynamic pedestal! To achieve the structure, Saarinen ultimately landed on a cast aluminum base that attaches to the tabletop. This innovative piece was an instant hit back then!
