Eames Segmented Tables Meeting

Charles & Ray Eames, 1964
In 1964, Charles and Ray Eames developed a system of base elements that enables many different table sizes and shapes, resulting in the elegant Eames Segmented Tables. Due to the versatility of this system, Vitra not only offers six standard table sizes but can also accommodate individual requirements and provide customised solutions.
The Segmented Tables can be equipped with power and data connections as well as wireless charging technology; cables are concealed in the base columns.

Eames Tables
The design story of the Eames Tables harks back to the 1940s, when Charles and Ray Eames developed the first versions of what later became the table base. These early designs, which already reflect the designer couple’s characteristic method of thinking in systems, were suited for a variety of chairs and tables. The bases used today for the Eames Tables were created in the 1960s in conjunction with the development of the Soft Pad Chairs. The Eames Tables are distinguished by their rational construction and aesthetic understatement. For decades they have facilitated communication, teamwork and interaction in offices, public spaces and homes. They meet today's requirements with intelligent power and data solutions and modern technologies such as wireless charging. This table family comprises the large-surface Segmented Tables and the smaller Contract Tables. High-quality materials guarantee an unusually long product lifespan. All models are available with HPL tops, which have a distinctive rounded black plastic edge, or in a choice of wood veneers. The Eames Contract Tables are also offered with melamine-faced or solid core tops, the latter of which are suited for outdoor use.
