      E2 table - also known as Eiermann table

      Simple design and yet unmistakable: the E2 table is characterised by the slender steel tubes and the stiffening cross struts. They make the table stable and enable an economical construction.
      A classic in furniture design.

      A timeless classic: the E2 table as a reliable desk

      The most common use of the E2 table is certainly as a worktable. From the very beginning, it was used as a studio, drawing room, workroom or office. The fact that the table has proven itself to this day despite modern working methods and means shows how timeless the design of the E2 table is.

      What the E2 table can (be) all about

      E2 Worktable

      Equipped with melamine top, an E2 table is an unpretentious and practicable furnishing for your workplace. So you have a workshop table for drawing, writing, painting, model building and handicrafts.

      E2 Dining table

      The E2 table also cuts a fine figure as a dining table. For dining tables you should definitely choose a table frame with a central strut cross, as most people want to sit at the dining table from all sides.

      E2 Children's table

      The E2 table grows with you and always fits regardless of age and height. The children's table is a faithful companion from school entry to university and thus the most flexible version of the E2 table.

      E2 Conference table

      Even large tables or groups of tables can be realised with E2 tables. For conference tables you should choose table frames with a central strut cross so that you can sit at them from all sides.

      Material & colour of the E2 table

      The top: solid melamine tabletop or colourful linoleum tabletop

      What's on top of the E2 table should be based primarily on your requirements. If you need a sturdy tabletop on a worktable, a melamine tabletop is a good choice. If you want to enjoy the warmth and comfort of a linoleum-coated tabletop, choose from three different top structures: Multiplex board or medium density fibreboard with straight or optionally slanted edge, or chipped wood ("blockboard") with straight edge and edging.

      The underside: a well thought-out steel table frame

      The E2 table frame is available in different sizes. Depending on the size of the table top, choose the right table frame for you. You can also choose from different surfaces for the E2 table frame. There are lacquered versions in black, white and silver grey. You can also choose a clear lacquered frame if you prefer the raw colour of the steel. In addition to the lacquered versions, you can also get your E2 table frame shiny chrome-plated.

      History of the E2 Table

      Where did the design of the E2 table come from and who invented it? What is an Eiermann table after all? And why are there different suppliers today? Here we answer all questions about the history of the E2 table. You'll learn about the development of the design, the producer of the table frames and the trademark rights to the term Eiermann. We'll also tell you how and when Modulor got involved with the E2 table.

      Part 1: Modulor and the E2 table frame

      In the history of Modulor, the E2 table frame played no role for a long time. Furniture did not play a role in our assortment at all. We wanted to offer architects what they would use to create their designs, models and drawings, not what they would use to equip their offices.

      But there's no question that Egon Eiermann's design for a table frame had already inspired us at an early stage. So simple, so clear, so low the material input and so stable and resilient. And that's why such a tubular steel frame hung decoratively under the ceiling in our showrooms for years. We were fans. However, at this point our customers did not perceive the E2 table frame as a purchasable item - the number of enquiries and the resulting sales remained manageable.

      This changed the moment we brought it down to the sales floor. We quickly learned that we had customers in the store looking for exactly this table frame. And directly the sales figures increased. Nevertheless, we got worse purchase conditions from the manufacturer of the frames than we sold more. That was surprising, because we had already acquired so much experience in the trade: The more we bought from suppliers, the cheaper the prices normally became.

      Well, we thought, maybe the furniture market is ticking differently. We didn't have much experience here yet. After we got even worse conditions despite further increasing sales figures, it was time to act: We visited the furniture fair in Cologne and met Richard Lampert, who also produced the table frames. However, the sales figures we presented were obviously so high that their credibility was doubted. Nevertheless, we received a signal of interest. Unfortunately, we never received an offer or any other feedback. We tried to get in touch again several times, but our efforts were unsuccessful. And so we looked for an alternative manufacturer and found him in the metal workshop Adam Wieland.
