FAQ

Should the answers to your questions not be found here, our service team can be contacted Mo-Fr, 8am to 6pm via +49 (0)341 2222 88 22.

What is the difference between the Eiermann 1 frame and the Eiermann 2 frame?

With the Eiermann 1 frame the crossbars are positioned diagonally. With the Eiermann 2 frame they are vertical

Can the Eiermann Table also be used as a dining table?

The Eiermann 2 frame with the central crossbars can be used a dining table, as the table can be accessed from both sides. Something that is not possible with other variations. For use as a dining table we would however recommend the use of the mounting set to secure the table top to the frame.

Can the table top be used on both sides?

The melamine coated and linoleum table tops can have light tears that mean one shouldn't use the underside. The solid oak and solid core laminate table tops can however be used on both sides.



Design Story



The Design


The Eiermann Table is based on a 1953 Egon Eiermann design; namely a metal table frame with a diagonally placed support crossbar. In 1965 Adam Wieland, at the time head of the workshops at the Technischen Hochschule Karlsruhe where Eiermann was teaching, adapted the design to feature a vertical support crossbar. A variation that also made the frame easier to dismantle and transport. Easier to dismantle and transport but less elegant that the original Eiermann table frame. In addition to the Eiermann table frame the contemporary furniture producer Richard Lampert also offer an accompanying table top. A striking example of functional modernism the Eiermann Table - or architects table as it is often referred to on account of its popularity in the profession - is a design classic that is a simple as it is practical.

Designer of the Eiermann Table: Egon Eiermann

Production

In 1993 Richard Lampert acquired the licencse to produce the Eiermann table frame, since when his Stuttgart based company have produced both the original Eiermann table frame 1 and the 1965 adapted Eiermann table frame 2 version. Both models are availble in a range of sizes and colours and are offered by (smow) as complete set with a table top under the package "Eiermann Table". In addition Richard Lampert produce and supply a children's version of the Eiermann Table.

Designer

Born on 29th September 1904 in Neuendorf near Berlin Egon Eiermann grew to be one of the most important and influential German designers and architects of his generation. Following completion of his studies at the Technischen Hochschule Berlin Egon Eiermann originally worked in Berlin before fleeing to Karlsruhe during the war. Post-war Eiermann developed numerous landmark projects including the Neue Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche, the administrative offices of the West German parliament in Bonn and numerous department stores for the company Horton. works that, more often than not were accompanied by controversial, heated, discussions on account of Eiermann's modernist approach. More universally acclaimed however was Eiermann's furniture design work. Objects such as the Eiermann Table or his numerous chair projects not only being appreciated then but having become design classics since. Egon Eiermann died on Baden-Baden on July 19th 1970 aged 65.


Historical context


Despite studying in the 1920s, Egon Eiermann doesn't belong to the Bauhaus ranks but rather is associated with so-called Secondary Modernity and functionalism. Indeed it wasn't until the 1950s on a tour of the USA that he first met the likes of Marcel Brauer, Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe. In comparison to such men Eiermann was able to continue his career post-war in Germany, a situation that helped him become acknowledged as the father of German functionalism. In addition to the likes of Arne Jacobsen or Alvar Aalto Egon Eiermann was one of the main representatives of a branch of functionalism that called for, and got, clear, light designs. Egon Eiermann was also one of the first European designers of his generation to grasp that furniture needed to be able to be mass produced in order to be successful: a condition he realised with more than a degree of finesse and charm.

Producer

In 1993 Richard Lampert received persmission to produce Egon Eiermann's 1953 table frame as well as the somewhat later adapated version with the vertical supporting crossbar. In addition to producing the table frames, table tops and a series of accessories, the Stuttgart based company also produce and distribute works by verity of international designers accross all product groups.

Eiermann Table Frame 1 vs Eiermann Table Frame 2

The Eiermann table frame 1  is an undisputed classic of contemporary furniture design. Designed in 1953 by Egon Eiermann the table frame is composed of two steel tube side elements joined, and stabilised, by a diagonally attached crossbar. Utilising a minimum of material to achieve a maximum of stability in an object that remains true to Eiermann's aesthetic principles, the Eiermann table frame 1 is as unique in its construction as it is flexible in its uses.

The adapted version of the table frame with the vertical supporting crossbar was developed in 1965 and is, as with the original model, known as the Eiermann table frame. Indeed over the years the name Eiermann table frame 2 has established itself in common parlance to distinguish the version designed directly by Egon Eiermann and the adapted version.

In direct comparison of both frames one instantly the closer attention to the proportions in the Eiermann 1 against the Eiermann 2; Egon Eiermann's attention to fine detail showing over the more industrial Eiermann 2 "
