During Salone, Knoll will also introduce an unprecedented addition to its Saarinen Collection. For the first time ever, Knoll’s renowned Saarinen Dining Tables and Saarinen Low Tables will be available for outdoor use!
The iconic tables, which are already offered in countless types and colors of marble, as well as in wood and laminate tops, will now also be available in a white Acrylic Stone top. This special Acrylic Stone makes the tables suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments. Knoll’s new Outdoor Saarinen Dining Tables and Outdoor Saarinen Low Tables will be offered in several different sizes/dimensions.
Knoll’s Saarinen Table (or Pedestal Table, as it is widely known), was first introduced in 1956. Designed by Eero Saarinen to alleviate clutter, this innovative table introduced the concept of one center stem, instead of the traditional four legged support. This minimalist design not only opened up space underneath the table, but provided a cleaner, elegant look that was both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
