100% Made in Italy. Coffee table in black-painted steel wire. Plywood top with black or white laminate veneer.
Dating back to the 1950s, the little tables share the materials that compose them: a black-lacquered steel rod frame with a multi-level top and a visible natural edge covered with plastic laminate. The materials were easily obtained and familiar to the target audience for the products. Simple, practical and functional, the two tables fully express the vision and the philosophy of Eames, the intention to create furnishings that could become part of a life lived with simplicity and beauty. The first was nicknamed “surf table” for its unique form, which was the main reason for its enormous success. The second was one of the furnishings for the Eames home in Pacific Palisades. It was said to have been used during a tea ceremony in which Isamu Noguchi and Charlie Chaplin participated. Black lacquered steel rods frame. Plywood top with a visible natural edge, covered with plastic laminate.

In the end, everything ties up.

After his early unsuccessful experiences as an architect, Charles Eames taught industrial design at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Among his colleagues were Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen and Ray Kaise; Eames went on to marry Kaise, with whom he shared both his work and his life. The influence of Charles and Ray Eames on design in the ‘50s were truly enormous: sculpted organic forms, new materials and production techniques, a revolutionary approach which expressed itself not only in design but in exhibitions, stage designs, cinematography and in forerunning multimedia presentations (films, slide shows, drawings).

With their multi faceted activities, the Eames supported the values of coherence and social morality, egalitarianism, informality and anti-materialism. Among the most important exponents of the Organic Design and also the greatest designers of the century, Charles and Ray Eames showed how modern design could improve our quality of life, as well as knowledge and comprehension between peoples.
