Only 80 pieces of the exclusive typographic furniture to be made

Herman Miller Japan teams up with House Industries to create a highly exclusive edition of classic Eames wire-base tables (also known as LTR or Low Table Rod) featuring fonts lifted from the House Industries’ 2010 Eames Century Modern font collection. Each tabletop is hand-printed in House’s Grand Rapids, Michigan factory, returned to Herman Miller for assembly then packaged in a special House Industries-designed wooden crate. The typographic furniture will be limited to only 80 tables illustrating letters A thru Z, numbers and ornaments from the font collection. Even the crates they come in are worthy of keeping just to stash your stuff — House Industries owner Andy Cruz wanted to ensure the packaging for this limited edition collection was something you’d want to keep almost as much as the wire-base tables themselves. Unfortunately for most of us, we’ll never get our hands on them — only 40 tables will be available at the Herman Miller Reach event today (September 16, 2011) and 40 will be available at the House Industries exhibition at the Herman Miller Tokyo Showroom on October 27, 2011. Booooo…
