Description from Design Within Reach
Characteristically, the Eames; Wire-Base Table is remarkable for the elegance achieved using simple, practical materials. Its scaled-down profile shows the influence of Japanese forms and households based on an aesthetic ideal of simplicity, serenity and restraint. In fact, the Eameses used these wire-base tables in their home during a tea ceremony that included Isamu Noguchi and Charlie Chaplin. Just 10″ high, the table provides a handy surface for a stack of books or a place to rest a drink.
