Knoll Grasshopper Rectangular Table 240cm
Manufacturer: Knoll Studio
Designer: Piero Lissoni
The elegance of Grasshopper derives from the perfect combination of surfaces and structure: the round or rectangular surfaces are characterized by their slenderness, while the structure is formed of very thin, high-performance cast steel elements available chromed, burnished or painted. For the tabletop materials, we have opted for glass, heat-treated woods and uncommon and exquisite stone. The low tables use the same materials and combine with the main round tabletop to produce secondary, differently sized tables that can be moved along the perimeter, tracing out circular orbits.
"If this table could be described with just two words, they would be flared and lightweight, and indeed, Grasshopper borrows its name from the animal that has six precision tools for legs. Here there are four, but they are equally long and incredible, and yet perfectly functional. Above them sits a top that is so thin that it looks able to lift up and take to the air. An object that is so weightless and compact that it works perfectly with all the chairs of the Knoll range. And then I wanted it to have the height of a classic table, just a little lower than those of today, a few centimeters less to promote refinement and conviviality around the table. Grasshopper also includes a family of low tables
conceived as a minimal planetary system. A small group of celestial bodies conveying cordiality and courtesy. Suspended at different heights, they turn as if floating in thin air, supporting the hypothesis that a gentle spirit is an ethereal gift."
