American companies House Industries and Herman Miller are producing a limited-edition series of 80 Eames wire-base tables that include letters A-Z, numbers and ornaments from House Industries' Eames Century Modern font collection.
Each tabletop is hand-printed by designer David Dodde in House Industries' Grand Rapids, Michigan factory, returned to Herman Miller for assembly then packaged in a special House Industries-designed wooden crate.
The tables will travel to Asia for display and sale. Forty of the tables will be available in Hong Kong at the Herman Miller Reach event on September 16, 2011 and 40 will be available at the House Industries exhibition at the Herman Miller Tokyo Showroom on October 27, 2011.
