An uncompromising classic of the mid-century modern movement, Saarinen’s Tulip collection remains a firm favourite of design aficionados some seven decades on from when it was first introduced. Bringing together a metal base with a laminate tabletop, the side table is versatile and hard-wearing, and immediately elevates any living space. At home in a living room, bedroom or hallway, the Saarinen is a mainstay of the Knoll Studio catalogue and a true design icon.
This particular rendition of the table is available in two sizes and a number of finishes. You can learn more about history of the collection and its designer on the Nest journal.
Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was incredibly influential in shaping the postwar American modern design movement. Born in Finland Eero Saarinen was the son of architect Eliel Saarinen, one of the founders of the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
