Elliptical Table ETR

Charles & Ray Eames, 1951

On account of its resemblance to a surfboard, the low elliptical coffee table ETR (Elliptical Table Rod Base) quickly acquired the nickname ‘surfboard table’. With its twin chrome-plated base elements and laminated top in black or white, the table’s construction takes up a common theme in the work of the Eameses, namely that of bent steel wire welded together to make a rigid structure.

Material description
  • Table top: plywood core, high-pressure laminate surface.
  • Base: steel wire, chrome-plated or powder-coated.
