The Vitra Design Museum has launched a series of Classic Trays, featuring the designs of Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson and Alexander Girard.

The trays are constructed using high quality thermoset and sized around 46cm x 35.5cm, so not too big, but very eye-catching all the same. Inevitably that's down to the designs, which are Eden by Alexander Girard (above) from 1966, the '61 Mother and Child design by Girard (see that over the page), George Nelson's 1950 China Shop, Miller Stripe by Girard from 1973, Sea Things, which is a 1945 Charles and Ray Eames design and finally The Family, another Eames piece from 1944.

All are available to pre-order now for a September delivery, priced at £43.50. Yes, an Eames original for under £50!
