In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
After various experiments to create a round coffee table, in 1946 Charles and Ray Eames came up with their "round coffee table with metal legs", a simple occasional table with a round plywood tabletop slightly raised at the edges and four slim tubular steel legs. The table goes well with the other designs in the Charles and Ray Eames Plywood Group.
