Design by Eero Saarinen, 1956.
In his purist approach to architecture and interior design, Eero Saarinen sought the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution within an overall unity of design. The 20-Inch Low Round Side Table features Saarinen's remarkable tulip-base silhouette with a single stem base taking the place of traditional legs. Constructed from molded, cast aluminum polished and coated in a tough, abrasion-resistant Rilsan finish. Available in wood, laminate, coated and natural marble and natural granite top finishes, in a wide range of colors. The base finish is available in White, Black or Platinum.
Note that marble tops are offered in two finishes: standard Polished or Satin. The satin finished marble creates a matte sheen that gives the top a natural honed appearance while offering the same protective qualities as the Polished polyester coated marble finish.
ExtraWhite Marble is currently on product hold/unavailable. Saarinen Side Tables with Laminate, Natural Marble, Veneer or Granite tops are Greenguard certified. The Knoll logo is stamped into the base of the Saarinen Tables. Tops have nameplate with designer's signature. Marbles with a polyester coating will yellow over time. Not suitable for outdoor use.
Material(s): Molded cast aluminum with laminate, wood veneer, marble or granite
Dimensions: 20" Dia 13.75"H

I purchased the 20in low in arabscato marble gloss finish and the table is striking. The only thing that surprised me was how low the "low" table actually is. It only comes up to my mid-shin (it's lower than my coffee table). Luckily I have a low platform bed so it still works as a good side table for it.
