A true classic, updated to withstand the elements
Designed by George Nelson in 1954, the Nelson Pedestal Table Outdoor has been updated with hardy materials that will stand up to the elements. It offers an auxiliary surface to complement any grouping of outdoor furniture. Two heights and two diameters of North American stone tops enable the selection of the right table, or tables, to suit any open-air arrangement.
A Cut Above
The first step in creating the Nelson Pedestal Table Outdoor was to choose a selection of stone finishes that would be durable and provide a natural complement to the existing design, while also contributing a unique character of their own.
We sourced stones from North American quarries and named them after their home state: Georgia Grey Marble, a cloudy grey stone from the same location used in the 2004 renovation of New York's Museum of Modern Art; Wisconsin Black Marble, a unique dark stone speckled with lustrous green and grey veins; and Quebec Graphite Granite, a subtly patterned granite composed of deep hues used to rich effect in Chicago's John Hancock Center.
Once extracted, two 10-mm-thick slabs of stone are cut to order with a knife edge derived from Nelson’s original design and given an eggshell-like honed finish. Tops and bases are connected with a bolt that runs the length of the column to ensure strength and durability through years of use.
