THE STORY BEHIND THE E1027 COFFEE TABLE
Eileen Gray designed the E1027 Coffee Table in 1927 for the guesthouse bedroom of a summerhouse in France, which she built with her lover, Jean Badovici. The 'E' stands for Eileen. The numbers represent the positions of letter of the alphabet. So the 'J' for Jean (as it's the 10th letter of the alphabet), the 2 is the 'B' for Badovici and the '7' is the 'G' for Gray.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
1878 (Ireland) -1976 (France)
Irish born, Kathleen Eileen Moray Gray was a furniture designer, architect and pioneer of the modern movement. Considering the era she lived in, this was a quite an accomplishment for a woman in a very male dominated industry. Gray was a great admirer of Charles Le Corbusier and his influences can be seen in her self-built French summerhouse, which was also named E1027.
