Can the Eiermann table top be used on both sides?
The melamine coated and linoleum table tops can have light scratches that mean one shouldn't use the underside. The solid oak and solid core laminate table tops can however be used on both sides.
From which material is the table top made?
With the exception of the solid wood version all table tops are made from coated plywood. The melamine-coated table tops have a 2 mm oak edge (formerly beech) or a white edge. The linoleum coated table tops have a 2 mm oak edge and on the lower side a white melamine coating.
Accompanying the Eiermann Table Frames Stuttgart based furniture manufacturer Richard Lampert also offers the Eiermann table top. The architect and designer Egon Eiermann designed the table frame with its famous obliquely set support bars in 1953 while working at the Technical University of Karlsruhe. In 1965 a revised version was created, in which the stabilizing crossbar is positioned vertically for more usefulness. This licence-free version is now sold by Richard Lampert as the Eiermann Table Frame 2. The Richard Lampert Egon Eiermann table top itself was not specifically designed by Eiermann for his table frame. Eiermann's original design left the user free to choose his or her own table top - Eiermann's students even used doors. Richard Lampert offers a selection of table tops specially created to both fit the various frame dimensions and compliment the simple yet attractive frame design.
Since 1995 the Stuttgart based furniture manufacturer Richard Lampert has possessed the license for the production of the original Eiermann Table Frame 1. The Eiermann table tops are sold separately to the frame. They are made either from either solid wood (oak or maple), melamine covered MDF or colour coated linoleum and are available in a range of sizes.
The license to produce the original Eiermann Table Frame 1 has been held since 1995 by Stuttgart based furniture manufacturer Richard Lampert. Lampert also produce and distribute furniture designs from a wide roster of international designers including Peter Horn, Herbert Hirche and Alexander Seifried, in addition to a specially commissioned collection of children's furniture.
Egon Eiermann's can best be understood in context of the functionalist tradition of classical modernism, as ably demonstrated by, for example, the Eiermann Table. The reduced, practical and timeless design from the 1950s is almost the perfect physical manifestation of the Zeitgeist of post-war European society. Although Eiermann worked as an architect at the time of Bauhaus, his oeuvre clearly distinguishes itself from that school. His style is much more aligned with the so-called second modernity and architects and designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Alvar Aalto.
The design might not originate from him per se, but it was ultimately Egon Eiermann who inspired the Eiermann table tops through the reduced elegance of his table frame design. Egon Eiermann was born in 1904 in Neuendorf near Babelsberg. He studied architecture at the Technical University Berlin and worked as a freelance architect from the 1920s. Among his most popular works are the New Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin and the Horten department store in Stuttgart, from which developed the so-called Horten Tiles. Although popular, many of Eiermann's works also generated protest on account of their progressive design language. Eiermann's furniture was much more readily accepted. In addition to the Eiermann table Egon Eiermann also created numerous chair designs which are and were produced by Wilde + Spieth. Egon Eiermann died in 1970 in Baden-Baden.
