Screw Bistro TableEero Aarnio $4,562.00
The legendary Eero Aarnio on the creative inspiration for his 1992 Screw table designs: "I have always studied my surroundings, the nature, buildings, objects, out of scale, in which case big can be small and visa versa. With this in mind a small metal screw serves the function of a table: a spiral part is a thin table leg and the head is the broadening table top. It is only a question of scaling. Naturally the same function and shape can be realized simplified but the outcome is very ordinary. The shape of the screw gives the product added value and it gets your imagination and creativity going. You are an inch tall in the land of giants, where even the screws are almost your size." Aarnio's Screw tables are available in side table and bistro size table dimensions and make a powerfully whimsical statement in both high-end residential and commercial interiors.

Eero Aarnio was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1932, studied at the Institute of Industrial Arts and opened his own interior and industrial design office in 1962. Aarnio's iconoclastic seating solutions captured the optimism of the pop culture movement of the 1960s with their visually exciting, space-age forms. His designs possess both internationalism and individualism while upholding the traditional Scandinavian concern for aesthetic purity, quality and durability. Aarnio's inquisitive spirit led him to experiment with the synthetic capabilities of fiberglass and acrylic, culminating in his best-known designs, including the iconic Ball chair (1963), Pastille chair (1967) and the revolutionary, suspended Bubble chair (1968). His work resides in collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Eero Aarnio continues to design furniture, lighting, and everyday objects in his studio in Helsinki, where he lives and works.
