Eames Segmented Tables Dining

Charles & Ray Eames, 1964

Social gatherings at the home of Charles and Ray Eames were legendary. This was especially true when a meal was served. In addition to planning the meal, Ray immensely enjoyed preparing the table – a round Eames Segmented Table – with the aim of bringing pleasure to each individual guest. The arrangement of tablecloths, tableware, cutlery, vases and decorative objects resembled a freshly painted picture, whose shapes and colours complemented the food that was served, creating what resembled a small piece of art.

The role of a table extends far beyond aesthetic considerations, as it is the communal and convivial heart of the home – a place where people can connect. The emphasis on 'connection', as a universal element in both design and everyday life, is a recurring theme in the Eameses' work – even as a structural principle in their products: in the segmented base of the Eames Tables, a so-called spreader connector holds the base elements together and is an essential component, guaranteeing the sophisticated modularity of the entire table range.

The Eames Segmented Table (Dining) is characterised by an interplay of dimensions, materials and colours, transforming the legendary classic into a comfortable, elegant dining table. With a round or boat-shaped table top in a choice of sizes, it allows spontaneous and informal seating arrangements in diverse dining settings.

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. Suited for a variety of chairs and tables, these early designs already reflect the couple's characteristic method of thinking in systems. 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. The dining table versions are available with a choice of solid wood tops, while all the other models have tops in either HPL with a distinctive rounded black plastic edge, or in a selection 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.
