The Eames Outdoor Table is based on the original design for the outdoor tables designed for the Miller House and subsequently offered by Herman Miller as part of the Aluminium Group.
Never ones to treat their work as sacred, Charles and Ray Eames were continuously tinkering, altering, and improving upon their furniture designs for Herman Miller over the decades.
In 1964, as an evolution of the cast aluminium legs developed for the chairs and tables in Alexander Girard's La Fonda del Sol restaurant, they set about updating the base of the Aluminium Group Chair.
Utilising the same vocabulary they also created what we now call the Universal Base. It’s been in production ever since.
The Contract Base features sturdy and distinctive cast aluminium cruciform shape shared by the original Aluminium Group Chairs.
Suitable for terraces, patios, or al fresco dining areas in both warm and cool climates, our range of tables offers a durable and sturdy solution wherever a surface is called for. Round and square offered in a wide variety of sizes, surfaces, and heights enable you to select exactly the right weather-resistant table to suit your space and use.
No matter which base you opt for, the simplicity of Eames Tables Outdoor make them durable in appearance and fact. Tops and bases are connected with a bolt that runs the length of the column to ensure strength and durability through years of use.
