Design Charles & Ray Eames, 1946
Molded plywood, metal base
Made by Herman Miller

"The details are not details. They make the product. The connections. It will in the end be these details that give the product its life." -Charles Eames

This classic table's top are shaped by molding thin wood veneers under heat and pressure--the same breakthrough process Charles and Ray Eames used to create their molded plywood chairs. The molded plywood coffee with metal legs is lightweight in both appearance and fact. Its dimpled top is created by the molding process and forms a subtle border to help avoid accidental spills and create a natural centerpiece.

The coffee table first came to Herman Miller's attention when George Nelson, design director, saw it and other Eames molded plywood products at a showing in the Barclay Hotel in New York City in the mid-1940s. Nelson contacted the Eameses and soon afterward, they were designing for Herman Miller. These imaginative tables are an enduring landmark of modern, functional design.

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 Molded Plywood Coffee Table with Metal Legs features a 5-ply top and natural face veneers and hardwood inner plies. The ebony option is stain on ash veneer and inner plies are not as visible. The base is offered in black with black glides or trivalent chrome with white glides.

The primary need of the human being was an essential component of every design for Eames. They believed a design to be successful when it catered to how people are similar to one another instead of addressing idiosyncrasies, benefitting the greatest number of people.
Herman Miller is synonymous with “modern” furniture. Creative director George Nelson recruited contemporaries Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, and Noguchi to create a legendary furniture collection.
