Care Recommended is the use of soft, damp cotton cloth.

Any discolouration and colour residues from the galvanisation process that may have arisen during the production of chrome-plated frame parts do not represent a material defect, are not dangerous to health and have no influence whatsoever on the function/longevity of the table frame. If the deposits cannot be removed with a mild, standard household scouring milk, they can be easily removed with a paint cleaner / polish (e.g. from car accessories) using a soft cloth. We recommend that the cleaning is first carried out on a concealed area.

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 the design of the original frame was adapted 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


In 1995 Richard Lampert acquired the licencse to produce the Eiermann Table Frame 1, since when his Stuttgart based company have produced both the original Eiermann Table Frame 1 and an adapted licence-free 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.


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.


In 1995 Richard Lampert received permission to produce Egon Eiermann's 1953 table frame and in addition to producing the original Eiermann also brought the adapted and licence-free 1965 version with the vertical supporting crossbar, the Eiermann 2, onto the market. 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: Accessories

Eiermann Height Extension

Eiermann Table Extension - Flexibility in height and angle

To allow for more individual height adjustment options these Eiermann Table extensions allow the basic height of 65 cm to be increased in five stages of 35 mm up to maximum height of 85 cm. Because each extension can be individually adjusted the extensions also allow the table frame to be angled, for example, for use as a drawing table.

Eiermann mounting set

Mounting set - For fine adjustments and fixing

For fixing or finely adjusting the table top the Mounting set allows height differences of up to 20 mm to be evened out. Leaving no excuse for uneven surfaces!

Eiermann 1 cable trough

Cable trough - For a little order under your desk

Safely and securely store cables and similar objects under your Eiermann Table with the cable trough. Available in a range of sizes for all the Eiermann Tables the cable trough simply hangs in the frame and solves all those cable salad problems.

Eiermann height adjustable feet

Height adjustable feet - The simple solution for uneven floor surfaces

Uneven floor surfaces can make correctly positioning a desk a tiring business. The Richard Lampert height adjustable feet are simply screwed into the Eiermann table frame and can even out differences of between 20 and 40 mm. Thus ensuring the work surface you deserve. Regardless of where you work.

Industrial castors - For a mobile workplace

The industrial castors turn a static Eiermann table frame into a mobile office element that can be effortlessly transferred from A to B and back again as required. And with each set containing two castors with a brake, security is also included. Through the castors the table top height is raised by 70 mm

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 realises that the Eiermann 1 typifies Egon Eiermann's attention to fine detail more than the rather industrial Eiermann 2.
