After the end of World War Two, Charles and Ray Eames turned to rapidly emerging technologies with the goal of adapting these new industrial processes to the creation of furnishings. They experimented relentlessly with everything from bent plywood, to stamped metal, to fibreglass reinforced plastic, to welded wire.
The latter inspired a series of chairs, chair bases, an experimental sofa, and a table base that could be adapted for both large and small surfaces. The Eames's even developed a mass-production technique for simultaneously welding wire rods that Herman Miller adopted to fabricate these designs.
The Eames Wire Base Low Table is a result of that experimentation - a small, low table of elegant rectilinear proportions, up to just about any task. Lightweight and easy to move, they are easily arranged and rearranged depending on the occasion.
They can be grouped to offer a large surface, or spread out among guests. A selection of stone tops and weather-resistant powder coatings give this classic 1950 Eames design new life outdoors.
