"Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose."
-Charles Eames

Because your outdoor spaces deserve the same quality of furniture as your interiors, Herman Miller is offering the Eames Tables Outdoor. Suitable for terraces, patios, or al fresco dining areas in both warm and cool climates, the range of tables offers a durable and sturdy solution wherever a surface is called for. Round and square offered in a wide variety of sizes, surfaces, and heights enable you to select exactly the right weather-resistant table to suit your space and use.

It's hard to improve on a classic, but Herman Miller reengineered the Eames Tables to stand up to all types of weather, replacing parts that weren't suitable for outdoor use, adding durable powder coatings, and offering a selection of four North American stone tops.

Stones are sourced from four North American quarries and are named after their home state: Georgia White Marble, a luminescent stone from the same source that was used to create Daniel Chester French's 1920 sculpture of Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial; 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 centimeter-thick slabs of stone are cut to order with a bull-nosed edge and given an eggshell-like honed finish. The four-legged cast aluminum base is available in two powder-coat outdoor finishes. Tops and bases are connected with a bolt that runs the length of the column to ensure strength and durability through years of use. With matching bases and complementary finishes, these tables go especially well with the Eames Aluminum Group Outdoor chairs.

Eames

Husband and wife team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames played a major role in the world of modern architecture and furniture, as well as working in industrial and graphic design, fine art, and film. Charles completed two years of study at Washington University in St. Louis. With his design and life partner Ray, he designed prize-winning furniture that expanded upon the wood molding techniques of Alvar Aalto. Ray-Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames began as an abstract expressionist painter, having graduated from Bennett Women’s College in Millbrook, NY and later studying under Hans Hoffman while living in New York City. She co-founded the American Abstract Artists and has a painting in the Whitney museum’s permanent collection.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with “modern” furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
