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.

The Segmented Tables can be equipped with power and data connections as well as wireless charging technology; cables are concealed in the base columns.
