eames® elliptical table

Design Charles & Ray Eames, 1951
Wire frame, baltic birch core, laminate top
Made by Herman Miller

"Who would say that pleasure is not useful?"
-Charles Eames

Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with wire rods, work that yielded a number of breakthrough products in the 1950s. They considered many shapes for this large table introduced in 1951, but their final choice was elliptical. It reminds some of a surfboard. That's fitting, given that the Eameses enjoyed commanding views of the Pacific Ocean from their California home and studio.

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 high-pressure laminate in black, white or studio white. The Wire rod design base, a signature Eames look, is available in a powder-coat white, black or trivalent chrome.

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.
