Plywood Group CTM
With the aim of producing a round coffee table, Charles and Ray Eames pursued various experiments that ultimately resulted in the CTM table (Coffee Table Metal). Designed in 1946, this simple table has a round plywood top with a slightly raised moulded edge and four slender tubular steel legs. It is ideally suited for use with other designs from the Plywood Group by Charles and Ray Eames.
Charles and Ray Eames are counted among the most important figures of twentieth-century design. Their work spans the fields of furniture design, filmmaking, photography and exhibition design. Vitra is the sole authorised manufacturer of Eames products for Europe and the Middle East. When you own an Eames product made by Vitra, you know it is an original.
