Design Within Reach Eames® Elliptical Table

It also reveals the couple's practical side; their desire to create furniture that would become a part of a life lived with simplicity and beauty. Representing a whole new design language when it appeared in 1951, the table was re-issued by Herman Miller in 1994.

Product Information Following his apprenticeship with the legendary Constantin Brancusi, sculptor Isamu Noguchi began to experiment in environmental design, theatrical sets – he was the only designer that choreographer Martha Graham would work with – and, eventually, product design. He created his first furniture prototypes for Herman Miller in 1942 and went on to work with companies such as Steuben and Zenith. The Noguchi Table (1948) conceals nothing, revealing everything about the nature of simplicity. Two smoothly shaped pieces of solid wood interlock to form a tripod that supports a thick slab of transparent glass. The base is available in black, walnut, natural cherry and white ash, the latter of which is finished with a process that arrests the wood in its freshly cut state, resulting in a creamy white color that will not turn yellow over time. This is the authentic Noguchi Table by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Combination of sculptural beauty and practical surface. Materials:Solid wood base in Noguchi black, walnut, natural cherry or white ash; 0.75" thick glass.

Product Information We discovered the Moebius Table (2006) in Parma, Italy, but with its endless looping base and delicately suspended glass surface, it defies national boundaries. The solid walnut foundation flares and narrows in six arcs, creating a look of poised animation. Each upright is accented by brass hardware and serves as a balance point for the thick glass top. The name was inspired by August Ferdinand Möbius, the German astronomer and mathematician who first published the discovery of the Möbius strip – a two-dimensional surface with only one side. To construct a model of it, take a rectangular piece of paper, give it a half twist and then tape its ends together. The resulting shape has one continuous curve – a bit like the base of Moebius. Reminiscent of the iconic Noguchi® Table, this piece is a classic in its own right, blending rhythmic form with straightforward function. Simple assembly required. Made in Malaysia. DWR Exclusive Simple assembly required. Materials:Solid walnut base; brass hardware; 0.75" thick tempered glass top. Measurements:H 20.5" Diameter 28"
Product Information The Eames Wire Base Low Table (1950/2012) is remarkable for the elegance it achieves 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 this table in their home during a tea ceremony that included Isamu Noguchi and Charlie Chaplin. Just 10" high, it provides a handy surface for a stack of books or a place to rest a drink. This is the authentic Wire Base Low Table produced by Herman Miller. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials:Laminate top; seven-ply Baltic birch core; wire base. Measurements:H 10" W 15.5" D 13.25"
Product Information In a 1956 Time magazine cover story, Eero Saarinen said that “the underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world,” and that he was designing a new collection to “clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home.” Later that year, he completed his Pedestal Table (1956), whose form was inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. This iconic table features a cast-aluminum base with abrasion-resistant Rilsan finish and a solid marble, wood veneer or laminate tabletop. Each is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Eero Saarinen’s signature. This is the authentic Saarinen Pedestal Table by Knoll. Base made in China; tabletop made in Italy or U.S.A., depending on material. Stone masters carefully select marble with the best composition and veining to create tops for marble Saarinen Pedestal Tables. Please rest assured that each one’s unique markings are not imperfections but rather the very traits that make it a true one of a kind. Materials:Cast-aluminum base with Rilsan® finish; solid marble, wood veneer or laminate tabletop with beveled edge. Solid marble: Arabescato (white with heavy grey veining), Verde Alpi (green with black and white veining) or Extra-White (pure white with very faint traces of grey). Wood veneer: MDF with cathedral-grain oak, walnut, cherry, ebonized walnut or Pau Ferro rosewood veneer. Laminate: MDF with laminate. Measurements:H 20" Diameter 20"

Product Information A former apprentice to Constantin Brancusi, midcentury master Isamu Noguchi was no stranger to working with metal. The aluminum Prismatic Table (1957), the last piece of furniture that Noguchi designed, is an example of his return to the medium in the 1950s, during which time he created both functional and fine arts objects out of metal sheeting. Evoking the Japanese art of origami, the table features carefully bent and folded angles that lend dimension and a sense of solidity to the design. Small but sturdy, it's a crisp and classic side or end table. This is the first time the three-legged version of the table has been produced, and is artfully manufactured by the Vitra Design Museum in collaboration with the Isamu Noguchi Foundation. Materials:Powder coated aluminum. Measurements:H 15" W 16" D 16"
Product Information Le Corbusier referred to a house as a "machine for living," an industrial product that should include functional furniture or "equipment de l'habitation." In this spirit, he designed a system of furniture with Charlotte Perriand and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret. Expressing the rationalist aesthetic that came to epitomize the International Style, the framework of the LC10 Rectangular Low Table (1928) is reduced to a minimum. It was Perriand’s idea to manufacture the legs and side pieces separately to ensure the highest quality finish; in this fashion, components of various sizes can be used to create tables more in line with demand today. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina's Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy. A fully licensed classic. Materials:Polished chrome-plated steel legs; matte black steel stretchers; 15 mm tempered clear glass top with beveled edge; nickel-plated steel glides. Measurements:H 13" W 47.25" D 31.5"
Product Information In the 1920s, Marcel Breuer began to experiment with tubular steel, creating some of the most influential furniture to come out of the Bauhaus. Spurred by Breuer's design of a low table to accompany the Wassily Chair, the very simple, very clever multipurpose Laccio (1924) nesting tables exhibit his rationalist aesthetic and accomplished technique. The construction is extremely stable; the materials are of exceptional quality. The cool beauty of the chromed, seamless steel and satin-finish lacquer top will not diminish with use or time. Each table has an individual number for identification and authenticity. The KnollStudio logo and Marcel Breuer's signature are stamped into the base of the tables. The Laccio tables are a registered trademark of Knoll, Inc. Made in U.S.A. Materials:Seamless tubular polished chrome steel frame. Smooth plastic laminate top in satin finish. Measurements:H 17.75" W 21.75" D 19"
Product Information Niels Bendtsen’s Pool Table Collection (2004) is a juxtaposition of undisturbed flat water (like a table) and man-made squares and rectangles (like a pool). Highlighting these shapes are the green edges of the thick glass and reflections in the frosted or black tabletops. Pool’s tempered glass top and sides are permanently fused at mitered corners using a UV gluing process that offers rigid strength and a clean connection. Exposed edges are polished flat, making them smooth to the touch. The top’s color is silk-screened on the bottom of the panel and then baked to give a flawless and permanent hue. A variety of sizes offer several nesting possibilities, easily arranged to fit individual needs. Made in China. Made in U.S.A. Materials:Tempered Glass
