The famous table "Adjustable Table E.1027" was designed by Eileen Gray and Jean Badovici for their home in Roquebrune-sur-Mer on the French Riviera.
Today he is considered as one of the design classics at all and is particularly known for its simple design and the flexible adjustability.
The composition of the name has a background. The E is for Eileen, where the numbers always represent a letter in the order it appears in the alphabet. Thus, the 10 stands for "Jean" for the 2 "Badovici" and 7 for "Gray".
The famous "Le Cabanon" of Le Corbusier is in proximity to home E.1027.
(1878-1976) was an Irish interior designer and furniture designer. She is considered one of the most important designers of the early 20th Century.
Among her most popular designs is the "E 1027", a side table which in 1987 was included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
Gray's work is comparable to other modern designers like Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe and her designs are highly coveted by collectors and furniture enthusiasts all over the world.
As the youngest child of the wealthy family of Eileen Gray studied painting at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Arts of University College London in Bloomsbury. But when her father died in 1900, Gray transferred to the Ecole Colarossi and the Academie Julian in Paris. Gray returned to London in 1905 where she learned the art of painting from the Japanese artist Seizo Sugawara.
