1967 Prototype Alexander Girard / Ray Eames / Charles Eames Coffee Table by Herman Miller
Listed for sale is an exceptionally rare coffee table designed by renowned designers Alexander Girard, Ray Eames, and Charles Eames. It appears that this was a collaborative work with a top material pattern designed by Ray Eames and Alexander Girard. The base was then designed by Ray and Charles Eames (and the Eames office) and matches other La Fonda table bases. The table measures 30 inches in diameter and 18 inches tall. It has a gold patterned laminate top and chromed cast metal base. Condition overall is very good to excellent with some fading noted to the top's material. It also has a rubberized edge banding. See photos. This table was produced circa 1967, possibly closer to 1969 given the black Herman Miller medallion.
The table was acquired from a dedicated American design collector who bought the piece in the Los Angeles area years ago.
