In honor of Pride Month, manufacturer Knoll has announced a timely take on a beloved classic: Richard Schultz' iconic Petal table.
The original was hailed for its clever appropriation of a floral theme, with the compact circular table composed of eight equal petals. Schultz cited the lovely Queen Anne's Lace as his main inspiration, as each teak petal is an abstract interpretation of the flower's flattened clusters of tiny white blooms.
The 2022 version replaces the natural Teak with a rainbow palette, Roy G. Biv style with an extra pinkish fuschia petal tacked on to complete the circle.
Just like the original Petal, Pride Petal is a great addition for outdoor lounge areas. It also plays nice with other Knoll classics, like the Bertoia Chair and Saarinen's Tulip, as seen below.
Alas, Pride is not available to the general public. The limited-edition tables will be donated to nonprofits who will auction them off to raise funds in support of LGBTQ+ rights. Participating organizations include OutRight Action International, Lambert House, London Friend, Casa Frida Refugio LBGT+, and more.
