Production and technology rapidly changed after WWII. Materials used in production were also part of this new way of life and Ray and Charles Eames excitingly began to play with these elements. From plywood to plastic, their goal was to make an end product that was not only a beautiful piece of art, but a piece that could be mass-produced and used by all. It wasn’t long until the Eames started experimenting with wire rods in their designs. Through this material the Eames Wire Base Low Table was born.
It is said that leftover plywood from the Elliptical Table was used for the top. Stack one on top of the other or scatter it around a room to be used as an end table and it will be sure to bring style into your room. To celebrate Ray Eames’ 100th Birthday this year, Herman Miller is offering these fun pieces in Ray’s favorite bright pops of color! Now in red-orange, cobalt blue, and yellow-gold these little beauts are only being offered until March 31, 2013 while supplies last!
Extend the craftsmanship and beautiful design of this piece by using it outdoors. Now available in a stunning stone top, you can use this durable piece on your patio, by the pool, in an entryway, and more. Leave it to Ray and Charles to make a piece of furniture that is ever so beautiful and practical!
