The Eames molded plywood coffee table was designed by Charles and Ray Eames For Herman Miller® using the same breakthrough technology that resulted in their famous molded plywood chairs. Designed in the mid-1940s, the molded plywood table features a thin, slightly indented top and gently curved legs.
The table is shaped by the Eameses process of sandwiching thin wood veneers under heat and pressure. The table top is made by pressing three strong, lightweight hardwood inner plies between natural face veneers. The legs are eight-ply with natural face veneers. The resulting simple, lightweight design speaks eloquently of the fertile early years of classic Eames design. In 1945, George Nelson, the Herman Miller design director, saw the molded plywood coffee table and other ground-breaking Eames molded plywood pieces at a showing at the Barclay Hotel in New York. Nelson was so impressed that he told company president D.J. De Pree that Herman Miller had to hire the Eameses.
