Petal Dining Table
designed by Richard Schultz
At A Glance:
Richard Schultz designed the Petal Dining Table in 1960 as a companion piece to the Bertoia Chairs that were so enthusiastically received by the design-minded public. With a tabletop made from eight separate petals mounted on a cast aluminum "spider" bracket, the Petal Dining Table distinctly resembles the Queen Anne's Lace flower that inspired Schultz.
What's To Like:
- MoMA loved the Petal Tables when they came out - they grabbed them as soon as they were introduced.
- Each "petal" expands and contracts with the weather independently from the other petals, protecting the top from cracks.
- Yes, this dining table can be used outdoors!
- The table has an exceptionally sturdy base due to its many legs.
What's Not to Like:
We really can't pick on anything besides price, since beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This is an expensive - and beautiful - table, no doubt.
The Bottom Line:
Easy to look at and sturdily constructed with an eye for detail, the Petal Dining Table meets all the criteria of both art and furniture. Knoll has a winner here.
