In 1965, a slightly modified version of the original Eiermann table frame was developed in the metal workshop of the Technical University of Karlsruhe. Up until 1995, this version was known as Zeichentisch (drawing table). It’s an interpretation of the original Eiermann table, but it was not designed by Eiermann himself. It was one of his assistants who initiated the new design. The frame can be disassembled, but its detailing is less refined than the original. In contrast to the Eiermann 1, the stretchers sit vertically between the frame’s lateral parts and the crossbars are screwed together back-to-back. Due to this design, half-tubes are welded onto the ends of the crossbars: a feature that is very different from the original.
