Rare "DTW" Dining Table by Charles Eames

Request informationPurchase

Rare DTW1 Dining Table in ash by Charles & Ray Eames. Early edition by Evans Products (for Herman Miller). This early version in ash was produced in very limited numbers. Most DTW-1 tables were executed in birch. This dining table was designed at the same time as Charles Eames' much more famous molded plywood chairs. The single 90-degree fold in each of the beautiful bent-plywood legs is all that is needed to stabilize them. Lots of people bought the Eames plywood chairs; very few bought the Eames plywood table. Consequently it was produced for only a few years, and is today quite rare, especially in the lovely condition that this example is in.
