Saarinen Coffee Table Emperador Satin Finish Marble & Black Base



Florence Knoll was one of the great entrepreneurs of mid-century modern design.

One of her most enduring projects was this marble table created for Knoll by designer Eero Saarinen who vowed to address the “ugly confusing unrestful world” he observed underneath chairs and tables – a so-called “slum of legs.”

A five-year design investigation led him to create the revolutionary Pedestal collection first introduced in 1956. A hero product of the collection is this simple yet elegant Saarinen Coffee Table whose sweeping silhouette provides the perfect antithesis to the typical clutter found under chairs and tables.

The sturdy and sculptural coated aluminium base sweeps elegantly from the floor to support a uniquely veined Emperador marble top accented with a satin finish for a natural honed appearance with protective properties perfect for everyday use.

The Saarinen Coffee Table with a satin finish Emperador marble top is an icon of mid-century design and is still to this day manufactured exclusively by Knoll and carries Saarinen’s signature as a mark of authenticity.
