Table - 440
Table with black painted steel or chromed frame. Black laminated top.
Designed in 1950 by Charles Eames. Photographs of "Ellipse" table have been published in most books treating the design of the 1950' s. Long out of production in the United States, this simple, yet extraordinary table is a great admired and much sought-after collector' s item. Charles Eames made this table of undisguised industrial materials that were readily available and familiar to the public to which his furniture was offered. Yet, as with all of the furniture of Eames, there is not the slightest touch of banality nor any suggestion of brutality.
