When industry giants put their minds to small things, big ideas emerge. From American mid-century legends, Charles and Ray Eames, the Eames Compact table was the result of many years experimenting with wire frame bases and mass production techniques.
Rumour has it that these small tables were first designed from offcuts from other projects and were soon put into production in 1950. Ray Eames would use these tables for traditional Japanese tea Ceremonies when visiting guests such as fellow designer Noguchi or Charlie Chaplin came to their home.
Today they are a multi-function lightweight small surface for both indoor and outdoor with stone and wooden tops available from manufacturer Herman Miller.
