The rectangular toughened glass top of this table is supported by steel arms with suction cups which converge on a central spine. The A-frame end supports were inspired by the lunar landing module ‘Eagle’. The chairs have moulded G.R.P. bucket seats within steel frames which stack and have handles for linking them together in rows. The underside stamped Herman Miller and dated 1 June 1983.
