Description

Saarinen is a round elliptical table originally projected and designed by Eero Saarinen between 1955 and 1956 with the aim of giving birth to a minimal, sensual table without too many legs supporting the top. Its structure, in fact, is composed by a unique elegant piece in lacquered aluminium that holds a top in refined white Carrara marble, black Marquinia marble or practical and informal matt liquid laminate.
Available both in a fixed and extending version, Saarinen table is perfect both for formal and informal environments and it can be easily matched not only with one colour or colourful plastic chairs, but also with upholstered elegant chairs.

Information for your Quote
Saarinen table is a Made in Italy artisan reproduction.
The marble top is covered with a stain retardant, not with a stain-proof treatment in order to maintain the natural look and effect of the marble.
In the extending version, Saarinen table comes with a central extension system. Saarinen can be extended displacing the two lateral half circles towards the external sides and then setting the extension on the extended structure. The structure has not been projected to host the extension leaves, that are to be stored separately.

Technical study

Materials Specifications
Liquid laminate top: realised through a process of spray painting, this finish contain liquid plastic particles that allow the top to be waterproof and resistant to scratches.

Marquinia black marble top: elegant and refined stone marble, characterised by open veins that sometimes may present some resin based speckles that create a uniform and smooth surface so that the top comes with no irregularities, granting additional structural resistance.
