A classic mid century dining set comprising an original black Nero Marquina marble Eero Saarinen round tulip dining table matched to 6 original black Harry Bertoia wire chairs with original seat pads - both produced by Knoll.
The table dates from 2008 and was part of the platinum collection designed to mark the 50th Anniversary of Saarinen’s design and is labelled, as shown, accordingly. At 152cm it’s the largest round marble table Knoll offer in this design. It’s been well cared for and Cherished so is in very good used condition with no major marks or scratches and no chips to the edge as is often found with these tables. It does however, have two very small chips to the surface that look like they have been filled with a black epoxy. They are shown in the photos next to a £1 coin for scale, the first measures 10mm round and the second 7mm. The black base does have some marks just as you would expect as diners often scuff the base with their feet. But there is no rust and no areas where the black finish has been removed. In any event the base sits in the shadow of the top, so again any marks are barely visible.
It’s clear that the chairs have been re-powder coated in black at some point in their life (which remains in very good condition). You can see from the label shown that the chairs date from 1971 and all have the original leather seat pads (which are in very good used, vintage condition) although only one retains the original label that often gets detached over the years.
Overall the two designs create an eye catching centrepiece with the black chairs complimenting the black base and the black, grey and whites tones of the marble top. The chairs are also much more comfortable to sit in with the seat pads and they make a surprising difference to the overall day to day usability of Bertoia’s design.
