Knoll Studio Petal Tables

An elegant table for enjoying your outdoor spaces

KnollStudio‘s Petal Tables are one of their most elegant products. Richard Schultz cites Queen Anne’s Lace as his inspiration for this delicate outdoor table with its flower-like top sprouting from the delicate pedestal base. Each “petal” expands and contracts independently, ensuring stability in changing weather. Watch the video to see what inspired the table’s structure.


Here is what Richard Schultz has said about his lovely creation:

“I designed the Petal Table to accompany the Bertoia Chairs. The tops on the tables are made of eight petals, which are mounted on a beautifully crafted cast aluminum spider."

“I was inspired by Queen Anne’s lace, a weed that grows near our house in Pennsylvania. Each cluster of flowers is 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, which allows the table to expand and contract with the weather."

“The tables were introduced by Knoll in Los Angeles in 1960 and were immediately made part of the MoMA design collection.”

Here are the details:

  • Base and stem in a variety of outdoor powder coat finishes

  • Optional fitted outdoor cover available

And here are the construction details:

  • Tabletop is available in vertical grain natural teak and white HPDE (High Density Polyurethane)

  • Teak will weather and acquire a silvery tone if left outside in the elements

  • Each petal is held in place with 3 screws

  • Base and top support are powder coated cast aluminum

  • Stem is powder coated stainless steel

  • GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified

They are perfect for high-end cafes, coffee shops and chic lounges. Any patio, outdoor dining area, breakfast or sun-room would be brightened by a Petal Table. It is available in dining, coffee and end table models.
