Designed in 1950, this unique table is one of several modern classics that resulted from the Eameses' experimentation with a mass-production technique for simultaneously welding wires. The Wire-Base Table gave Charles and Ray Eames the perfect place to serve chanoyu, the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, to special guests such as Isamu Noguchi and Charlie Chaplin. The table proved ideal for such occasions – as stong as koicha (thick tea), as light as usucha (thin tea). Today these light, diminutive tables stand on their own, next to beds and chairs, or on top of each other in a convenient stack. The Design: In the late 1940s, Charles Eames noted all the ''fantastic things being made of wire.'' That fascination led Charles and Ray Eames to develop a mass-production technique for simultaneously welding wire rods. , One result was the Wire-Base Table, which was introduced in 1950. Their work yielded many other breakthrough products--including wire chairs, storage units, and elliptical tables.
