Herman Miller and Vitra recently unveiled a limited edition run of the classic Eames LTR table made from eucalyptus wood found on the Eames House property. Built in 1949, the Eames House still stands as a national landmark and remains a key resource of mid-century modern architecture and design true to the iconic design duo’s original design ethos.

The Eames House sits on a property in California that is also home to over 200 eucalyptus trees. Last year, two of the massive trees, unfortunately, had to be cut down for property maintenance purposes. To celebrate the Eames House’s 70th anniversary, The Eames Foundation partnered with Herman Miller and Vitra (the two authentic sources of Charles and Ray Eames‘ original designs) to create 600 tops for the original LTR table design using the wood from the removed trees. Despite the new material, the special edition tables employ the same wire technique as the original version, which was made in 1950.

The tables are currently available through Herman Miller’s website for $795 USD.

Elsewhere in design, Nike just named its new Advanced Innovation building after LeBron James.
