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

In the late 1940s, Charles Eames noted all the "fantastic things being made of wire." That fascination led Charles and Ray Eames to develop a mass-production technique for simultaneously welding wire rods. One result was the wire-base table introduced in 1950. Practical in so many milieus, the tables gave the Eameses the perfect place to serve chanoyu, the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, to special guests, such as sculptor Isamu Noguchi and film star Charlie Chaplin. Today these lightweight, diminutive tables stand on their own, next to beds and chairs as an accompanying surface, or on top of each other in a convenient stack.

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

The wire-base tabletop cosists of seven layers of Baltic birch plywood, beveled at 20 degrees and sandwiched between veneer, high-pressure laminate or .75" thick stone tops. The base is available in a powder-coat white, studio white, black or trivalent chrome. Also offered in an outdoor version.

Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son in law buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father in law as 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 & Ray Eames the company produced legendary classics of industrial design.
