Eames Molded Plywood Coffee Table w/ Metal Base by Herman Miller, Waln

Eames Molded Plywood Coffee Table, Metal Base by Herman Millerdesigned by Charles & Ray EamesAt A Glance:Charles and Ray Eames designed the molded plywood coffee table in 1946 to complement their famous molded plywood chairs. Lightweight and movable, this imaginative table is unmistakably Eames with its thin, slightly indented top and bent steel rod legs. This coffee table first came to Herman Miller's attention when their design director George Nelson 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.What's to Like:* Three high quality, lightweight hardwood inner plies are sandwiched between natural wood face veneers.* The 5-ply table top and slender legs combine for exceptional visual balance and gracefulness.
