The creation of the Vitra Contract Table collection occurred in one of the most productive phases in the careers of the designer couple Charles and Ray Eames: the 1950s. Having developed a universal base they designed a family of table tops in different sizes and shapes to set atop. In the round version the Contract Table is ideal for meetings or, for example and as its name suggests, singing contracts; however the Vitra table is just at home in canteens or cafeterias.

Design Story

That as a design team Charles and Ray Eames would become two of the most important protagonists of post war design was in many ways clear even before the two met: Charles initially studied architecture, before running his own studio and subsequently taking up a position at the renowned Cranbrook Academy of Art; Ray studied painting, participated in several exhibitions and enrolled in 1940 at the Cranbrook Academy, where she met Charles Eames. The pair married a year later and the rest, as they say is history, and one of the most impressive, enduring and endearing portfolios of furniture designs created in the 20th century, including the Contract Table. For the Vitra table Charles & Ray couple Eames developed a universal base atop of which can be placed tops in various sizes and shapes. The 80 cm square shape version is considered the home version of the Contract Table and as such is available in slightly different materials and finishes than the 70 or 90 cm versions; however regardless of which version you choose, the Vitra Eames Contract Tables are most suitable in any context, and particularly in the workplace, where they can serve for creative team meetings or for sociable get-togethers in the cafeteria.
