Eileen Gray did not want delicate luxury furniture for her house in Castellar, on the way from Menton to the Alps, but instead versatile pieces for every day use. She succeeded with Menton in one of her most ingenious constructions. Through a simple rotation of the top one has either a low or a high table as desired. Eileen Gray used Menton in the high position as a dining table, in the low position as a side table on the terrace and also as a coffee table in the guest room.
Proof of creative intelligence: a clever mechanism transforms Menton from a coffee table to a desk.

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.
