Bracing struts and wires of many kinds were extensively used in early aircraft to stiffen, strengthen, and sometimes even to form the main functional airframe. The LTR is made of plywood boards, topped with a variety of finishes, from premium wood veneer to plastic laminates, and wire struts completely support these. They are small, light, and can be used in various ways, such as a stool, child’s table, plant stand, and a low night table. You can also group LTRs to create a coffee table or stack them vertically to showcase your favorite decorative items.
Because of the strength of this small table’s base structure, it can support various tops, including heavier ones made of marble, which are now available from Herman Miller in Georgia Grey Marble and Wisconsin Black Marble. Both are suitable for outdoor use.
Today, the Eames Wire Base Low Table is available from our partners Herman Miller and Vitra with several tops.
