Design by Richard Schultz, 1960.
By Knoll.

Schultz originally designed the Petal Coffee Table to accompany the Bertoia Chairs that Harry Bertoia designed for Knoll. All tables feature tops made of eight petals, which are mounted on a beautifully crafted cast aluminum "spider". Schultz was inspired by Queen Anne's Lace — a weed growing near his home in Pennsylvania — which grows clusters of flowers, each supported on its own stem. By making a table in this manner, there is no need for a ring support, and each petal is independent, allowing the table to expand and contract with the weather.

The Petal® Collection Coffee Table can be customized with natural finish Teak or White polyurethane table top petals and several base/stem finishes. The support structure features a cast aluminum spider and base, with stainless steel stem - all finished in a weather resistant polyester powder coat.
