Herman Miller and Vitra have released a limited run of Eucalyptus LTR Tables – a version of Charles and Ray Eames' design with a top made from trees felled at the Eames House.

The tables were created from two eucalyptus trees harvested from the Los Angeles property, which were felled as part of the Eames Foundation's ongoing conservation plan for the house designed by Charles and Ray Eames.

Herman Miller and Vitra created the table tops in partnership with the foundation to extend the tree's longevity.
