Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1946.
By Herman Miller.
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 gently curved legs. The top and legs of this classic table 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.
This coffee table first came to Herman Miller's attention in the mid-1940s when George Nelson, Design Director, saw it and other Eames molded plywood products at a showing in the Barclay Hotel in New York City. Nelson contacted the Eameses and soon afterward, they were designing for Herman Miller.

Classic Eames table is what I thought it was.
By: Michael H., Homeowner (Austin)
Love that it's slim and lightweight. Easy to move when vacuuming. The classic mid-century look goes nicely with our sectional.
Designer: Charles + Ray Eames
A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled...
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."
That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.View other products by Charles + Ray Eames
