Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Iconic modern designs are reinterpreted with three new Herman Miller® furniture designs at YLiving. New designs include the Select® 2011 Nelson Tray Table, Noguchi Table in white ash and Eames® Lounge Chair and Ottoman in white ash.
The Select® 2011 Nelson Tray Table was chosen as the 2011 Select program offering at Herman Miller. The limited-edition Select program began in 2008, providing customers a way to enrich their connection to Herman Miller’s long history of iconic designs and their designers.
First introduced in 1961, The Round Tray Table exemplifies George Nelson’s belief that objects should be “designed to meet fully the requirements of modern living.” Intended to serve as a multipurpose table for use in the home or office, the table was discontinued in 1964. The 2011 Select Edition reinterprets Nelson’s original design with a jewel-like inlaid tray top in a striking sunburst pattern. The pattern is inspired by Nelson’s 1955 clock design, “Flock of Butterflies.” The table stands 17 inches high; the tray top—as part of the table or tray only—is 18 inches in diameter. As with the original, the 2011 Edition is presented in a special take-home container similar in size to a pizza box, with simple assembly instructions. This limited-edition design is available through February 2012.
In addition to the new Select design, two iconic furniture pieces, the Noguchi Table and Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, are now available at YLiving in a white ash finish. Perfect for today’s lighter, airy interiors, the ash components are finished with a process that arrests the wood in its natural, “freshly cut” state. The resulting color is a creamy white that will not turn yellow or golden over time.
The Noguchi Table, introduced in 1948, is the perfect balance between art and furniture. Sculptor Isamu Noguchi created his distinctive table by joining a curved, wood base with a free form glass top. The solid wood base of the table is now available in white ash, Noguchi black, walnut and natural cherry. The table with white ash base is a beautiful complement to the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman with white ash veneer and pearl MCL Leather.
In continuous production since its introduction in 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman are widely considered one of the most significant designs of the 20th century, is now available in white ash and pearl MCL Leather, with a white powder-coated base. This design was the culmination of Charles and Ray Eameses’ efforts to create a club chair using the molded plywood technology that they pioneered in the 1940s.
