A reintroduction of the coffee table that Charles and Ray Eames designed in 1949 for their Pacific Palisades home, this square coffee table features a wooden base with metal cross struts reminiscent of the wood dowel option on Eames shell chairs. Working closely with the Eames office, Herman Miller®, a manufacturer in MoMA’s collection, replaced the original, gilded rectangular top with more practical materials like this square walnut option. The dowel base has powder-coated or chrome struts and non-adjustable nylon glides. Made in the USA.
Fueled by a passion for addressing everyday human needs and a boundless enthusiasm for experimentation, husband-and-wife design team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames were among the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Their landmark contributions include furniture, architecture, film, and graphics. They were pioneers in the molding of plywood, which was developed from their experiments and projects for the U.S. Navy during World War II. Their association with the Museum goes back to 1940, with a joint entry with Eero Saarinen in the MoMA competition "Organic Design in Home Furnishings." Since then, nearly 100 examples of their work have entered the Museum's design collection.
