We have a general rule on Retro To Go that we try to feature items you can go out and buy. Sadly, these House Industries for Herman Miller limited edition Eames wire-based tables are only available to a select few of you. Although we are hoping for a wider release.
But one thing isn't in question – these are absolutely stunning.
House Industries has teamed up with Herman Miller to produce a limited edition series of 80 Eames wire-base tables (aka an LTR or Low Table Rod). Not just that, they will feature A thru Z, numbers and ornaments from the Eames Century Modern font collection from House.
Each tabletop is hand-printed by House’s David Dodde in their Michigan factory, returned to Herman Miller for assembly then packaged in a special House Industries-designed wooden crate.
Here's the downside. 40 tables will be available in Hong Kong at the Herman Miller Reach event on September 16, 2011 and 40 will be available at the House Industries exhibition at the Herman Miller Tokyo Showroom on October 27, 2011. So if you are in the far east, you know where to go. For the rest of us…well, we'll have to wait and see if the company produce more.
No mention of price, but as we're talking an Eames official reproduction, you'll probably want to take your credit card.
