Jean, named after Eileen Gray‘s intimate friend of many years, the architect Jean Badovici, stood in various models in their summer villa E 1027. "Every room has at its disposal one of these tables", wrote Eileen Gray, "that at the same time can serve as a desk. For entertaining one moves all the pieces together, unfolds them and what follows is a small dining table, light yet absolutely stable." There is nothing more to say.
Jean doubles its size with a twist of the hand – an excellent example of Eileen Gray’s sense of practicality.

Eileen Gray’s achievement in design and architecture is considered pioneering work of Modernism. During her lifetime, she was honoured by the London Royal Society for Arts with the title Royal Designer for Industry, and she is one of few women mentioned in the same breath as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. ClassiCon produces her iconic furniture designs as the sole and rightful licensee worldwide, in coordination with Aram Designs Ltd., London.
