ABOUT

Double your Herman Miller pleasure!!! These two vintage Eames for Herman Miller Aluminum Group tables are simply fantastic!! They are both comprised of a chrome four prong Contract base with a black shaft and aluminum colored spider attachment, and each has a round white laminate top with black edges. We have two available if you want them both, but if you only need one, you can choose which one you want at the time of purchase…A or B. Designed in 1964 by the husband-and-wife team Charles and Ray Eames for their Aluminum Group line done by Herman Miller. It can be used in an office as a smaller conference table, but it would be equally as wonderful in your dining room or as a game table. ! It is a handsome and timeless table that will host many options of dining or office chairs. Or…use the pair as end tables or night tables. We’ve done that in the shop and they look great! They are definitely FABULOUS pieces of furniture thanks to the genius that was Charles and Ray Eames.

 

Charles Eames was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1907. Ray Kaiser Eames was born in Sacramento, California in 1912. They met at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan and were married in 1941. They moved together to California and continued their design work they began together at Cranbrook. A commission, which they acquired from the government during WWII to produce molded plywood splints and stretchers, launched a career producing iconic mid-century modern furnishings which are still fresh and sought after today. The Eames and their association with Herman Miller were the partnership of the century. If you want to learn more about Charles and Ray please visit Eames Office, the Eames Official website.

 

Herman Miller started life as Star furniture Co. in Zeeland, Michigan in 1905 a producer of high-quality furniture. Becoming Michigan Star Furniture Co in 1919, and then in 1923, when long time employee Dirk Jan De Pree and his father-in-law purchased 51% of the company stock, it was renamed Herman Miller Furniture Company. And remained so until the 1960s when it became Herman Miller, Inc. Until the 1930s they produced only traditional wood furniture, but the Great Depression caused a need for change, and they hired modernist Gilbert Rohde who took the company in a new successful direction. Upon Rohde’s death in 1944 he was replaced by none other than the renowned George Nelson. Working with the likes of not only Charles and Ray Eames but Isamu Noguchi, Alexander Girard, and Robert Propst, to name just a few, Nelson led Herman Miller to became one of the finest names in furniture and design.

 

Charles and Ray Eames had the vision of making a better world. One in which things were designed to bring pleasure into our lives. This table can do that for you! Don’t wait… Make one, or BOTH of them yours!!
