Artist, designer and sculptor Ward Bennett studied at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris under Constantin Brâncuși, widely considered a 20th-century pioneer of modern sculpture. Bennett’s diverse works reside in the permanent collections of the Cooper Hewitt and MoMA, among others. Intrigued by the raw aesthetic of industrial materials – he was reputed to be one of the first to embrace industrial design in the home – Bennett created the original prototype for his I Beam Table (1963) by cutting a section off an actual steel I-beam, which he went on to use in his own Manhattan apartment for decades. It remains an eye-catching icon of modern design to this day, now crafted of powder-coated aluminum and glass. Made in U.S.A.

To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here. The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary. Glass For normal cleaning, use products specifically designed for glass. Stone Products with stone include tabletops of marble, granite, and slate.

Acid-based liquids, such as coffee, wine, and fruit juice, need to be wiped up immediately using a clean, soft cloth. The longer a spill remains, the more difficult it will be to remove and may stain. Do not use abrasive, acid, alcohol-based, or solvent-based cleaners, they will damage the surface.

Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen.
