Like the majority of Eileen Gray‘s tables, this one too can transform itself. And as always she found an unexpected solution. The folding section of the tabletop is supported by a single leg out of chrome-plated ubular steel – a conscious break in the otherwise perfect symmetry of the table. It is named after Eileen Gray‘s last home, Lou Perou, which she built at the age of 76 above St. Tropez. The name itself is in memory of a trip to Peru in the year 1929.
With a twist of the hand, the table extends and offers space for work documents or new guests.

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.
The "Eileen Gray - Non Conformist" exhibition will be extended until 26 February!!
