About this vintage design furniture

Mid-century “Tulip” dining table, Calacatta marble, 70’s – France Extraordinary dining table that follows the Tulip model by Saarinen made by private order in the 70s of the 20th century. Calacatta marble top of large dimensions and double pedestal or tulip. Widely recognized table, a classic in the history of design. It is configured with two legs with a circular base and a thin shaft made of conglomerate with a white coating. The smooth transition between these two parts, base and shaft, makes it an icon. The marble top has an oval shape and a grayish vein. The circle and the oval are two elements always present in Saarinen's designs, because in addition to being essential shapes they refer to the organic, and it cannot be forgotten that man himself is an organic element. When referring to the history of this design, it is always said that for Saarinen the “lower neighborhood of the legs”, that is, what is observed under the chairs and tables, was a “confusing, restless and ugly” world. ". To do this, he studied the best way to put an end to it and after five years he presented the “Tulip” or Pedestal Collection, introduced in 1958. With it, Eero Saarinen managed to reflect his ideal of formal unity. It comes from a private collection.
