Eileen Gray was born in Ireland in 1878, studied at the Slade School of Art in London and then moved to Paris in 1907. She worked as an interior designer until 1922, when she opened her own shop, the Galerie Jean Désert. In mid-career, Gray became an architect and designed a home on the French Riviera to enjoy with her partner, architect Jean Badovici. To celebrate their relationship, they named the house E.1027, which is a cipher for their intertwined initials: The E is for Eileen, and the numbers 10, 2 and 7 represent the alphabetical order of the letters J, B and G, respectively. The furniture she designed for their seaside retreat included the Adjustable Table E1027 (1927). Like the house, the table is cantilevered, giving it visual weightlessness and the ability to hover over anywhere you’re sitting. The fact that it’s height adjustable makes it an ideal solution for next to a bed, chair or sofa. This table is included in the permanent collection of MoMA. This is the authentic E1027, produced by ClassiCon and authorized by the World License Holder, Aram Designs Ltd. Made in Italy.
