100% Made in Italy. Polished chromed or lacquered steel tube frame. Glass top 5/6 mm thickness, adjustable height.
The famous “Adjustable Table” appears to have been created for serving breakfast in bed at the “E1027,” the “Maison en Bord de Mer” in Roquebrune. The “Tube Light” – a basic floor lamp with great elegance -- dated from the same period (1927). The strict and simple line, the tubular structure in chrome steel, the search for absolutely clean form are all evidences -- as in the Daybed and in Bibendum -- of Gray’s stylistic migration in those years from Art Déco toward Modernism, with materials and technological solutions adapted from industry and aeronautics. This tendency was surely related to her deep friendship with Le Corbusier and her relationships with other artists and designers, with whom she created the Union des Artistes Modernes. The models are both on permanent exhibit at MoMa in New York. Table: polished chrome or lacquered tubular steel frame. Glass top, adjustable height. Lamp: chromed steel base. Chromed metal stem. Incandescent tubular lamp.

Art must be the continuation of life.

Irish and aristocratic by birth, Eileen Gray was trained at the Slade School of Fine Arts of London and in 1902 she moved to Paris. With her extraordinary, creative and unusual personality, she represented the “new woman” of the 1900s: she wore her hair “like a man,” she smoked in public, drove a car, and flew in an airplane. She had romances with men and women and went to restaurants and nightclubs with them, even wearing men’s clothing. She honed her own sensitivity as an artist among some of the major cultural figures of the age: Colette, Gide, Proust, Rilke, Joyce and Gertrude Stein.

The independence and the originality of her mind made her career entirely unique. In 1922, she opened a gallery with furniture, lamps, mirrors and carpets that she produced in small quantities. After her success as an interior designer, and after turning 40, she studied architecture. From Art Deco, she migrated towards the Modern Movement, leaving an indelible imprint on the history of 20th century design. Her house “E 1027” in Cote d’Azur (1927-29) was famous: an emblem of architecture from the 1900s, a monument to Gray’s modernist vision.
