Nicknamed the “surfboard table”, this elongated Elliptical Table (1951) exemplifies the delightful playfulness that enlivened the work of Charles and Ray Eames. It also reveals the couple’s practical side; their desire to create furniture that would become a part of a life lived with simplicity and beauty. Representing a whole new design language when it appeared in 1951, the table was re-issued by Herman Miller in 1994.

Charles Eames, an American architect and designer was greatly influenced by the Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen. Eliel’s son Eero (creator of the Ball Chair) would later become a partner and friend of Charles. In 1941, Charles married Ray Kaiser also an American artist, designer, and filmmaker who, together with her husband Charles, is responsible for many classic, iconic designs of the 20th century.

Their work displayed the new technique of molded plywood products, including the 1945 DCW (Dining Chair Wood) and DCM (Dining Chair Metal with plywood seat) and the plywood Eames Lounge Chair 1956. From the beginning, the Eames furniture has usually been listed as by Charles Eames. In fact in the 1948 and 1952 Herman Miller bound catalogs, only Charles’ name is listed, but it has become clear that Ray was deeply involved and should be considered at minimum an equal partner in bringing the classic furniture pieces to life.
