How great is this custom Eames LTR or Low Table Rod collaboration between House Industries and Herman Miller Japan?  A total of 80 tables with the classic Eames wire-base were produced by Herman Miller, with the tops of each being hand-printed with letters, numbers and ornaments from the Eames Century Modern font collection.  The tables were initially manufactured at House Industries' factory in Grand Rapids, Michigan and then sent to Herman Miller for assembly and packaging in a special House Industries-designed wooden crate, the idea being that the packing itself should be just as beautiful and worth keeping as the contents.

Forty LTRs were initially unveiled at Herman Miller's Reach exhibition in Hong Kong on September 16, 2011 and another forty were featured at the House Industries exhibition at the Herman Miller Tokyo Showroom on October 27, 2011.  See more after the jump.
