Very fine variety of crystalline white with dark gray veins called "Arabeschi". Similar to the Arabescato Vagli, it is distinguished from this by the darker and more important veins which, at times, appear as ovules.
Provenance: Italy (Apuan Alps)
Arabescato marble such as white Carrara, Calacatta gold and most of the white marbles from the Carrara area, may have small holes due to the crystallization of calcium carbonate called "taroli" in the local dialect.
In practice, tarolo is not considered a defect but a "particular state of the very nature of marble" of some materials whose composition is made up of more than 90% of calcium carbonate.
Eero Saarinen conceived the Tulip table in the early 1940s as part of the research promoted by the MOMA in New York, entitled "Organic design in home furnishing collection".
The Saarinen table and chair surely represent the most famous creations of Eero Saarinen and perfectly photograph both the designer's ability to combine shapes, colors and materials, and his propensity for minimalist design.
