(2) Depth: 66 - 78 cm

|Material||Stainless steel, chrome plated steel or colour lacquered steel|
Material advice "clear lacquered steel": Please note that during production of the frame variants with the powder coating " clear lacquered steel", all surface treatment prior to powder coating is intentionally omitted. The clear lacquer coating is deliberately conceived to emphasise an intended technical-workshop expression (for example, the presence of distinctive welding spots). It is intended that discolouration, and also rust formation, under the powder coating arises/remains and is visible. The tubes are only degreased for processing. Following welding no additional sanding, smoothing, polishing or other cosmetic work is undertaken.
|Variants||Vertical support crossbar either centrally located or offset:

For use as a dining table, we recommend the Eiermann mounting kit
|Assembly||Please click on picture for construction manual (ca. 0,1 MB).
|Care||We recommend cleaning with a soft, slightly 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.

How much weight can the frame support?
Lampert recommends a maximum weight of 90 kg for the Eiermann table frame. The frame can support a greater weight; however, should the table be knocked from the side or is otherwise moved, the frame can develop a certain "momentum" and potentially deform.
Which table top can be used with the frame?
Egon Eiermann designed the original frame (the so-called Eiermann 1) without an associated table top: his students simply used any available board as a desktop. The manufacturer Lampert however offers table tops in various sizes to match the various frame sizes. The table top should always protrude sufficiently beyond the frame - i.e.e.g, for the 78 cm deep frame, choose the 90cm deep table top.
What is the difference between the frame colours chrome, silver and clear lacquered steel?
The silver frame is a silver lacquered finish which in contrast to the chrome frame is more matt. The chrome plated frames shimmer. With the colourless frame the steel tubing itself is visible - and thus also not only are the welds visible but over time changes in the material may occur. The colourless version of the Eiermann frame has a "raw" industrial character and is often ordered by architects and artists.
In 1953 Egon Eiermann created a table frame that would go on to adorn offices for the next six decades. With its characteristic oblique support cross bar the Eiermann table frame is a table frame like no other. No less unique is the free choice of table top for the table frame: in principal anything can be used. However because the refined design of the original Eiermann Table Frame 1 was sometimes perceived as being impractical, Eiermann table manufacturer Richard Lampert also produce a second, adapted and licence-free, version of the Eiermann table frame. Created in 1965, so a few years after Egon Eiermann has completed his original design, the workshop manager at the Technical University of Karlsruhe, where Eiermann taught, devised an slightly altered version of the design. Popularly referred to as the "Eiermann Table Frame 2", this version features a vertical support crossbar, thus allowing more freedom under the frame than in the Eiermann 1 version. Two versions of the Eiermann 2 frame are available from Richard Lampert, one with the support crossbar placed centrally and one with it slightly offset
In the 1990s Stuttgart based furniture manufacturer Richard Lampert acquired the license for the Eiermann Table Frame 1 and in addition to producing the original Eiermann also brought an adapted and licence-free version, the Eiermann 2, onto the market. The Eiermann table frame is available in a range of materials and colours and can be combined with a table top, also supplied by Richard Lampert.
