E1027 table (1927)

by Eileen Gray for ClassiCon

Adjustable side table.

Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing.

Top of crystal glass clear, parsol grey or metal black.

Among the classics this is perhaps the classic. Its ingeniously proportioned, distinctive form has made this height-adjustable table into one of the most popular design icons of the 20th century.

It is named after the summer house E 1027, “Maison en bord de mer”, that Eileen Gray built for herself and for her collaborator, Jean Badovici. Likewise, the secret code-name comes from her: E is for Eileen, 10 for Jean (J is the 10th letter of the alphabet), 2 for B(adovici) and 7 for G(ray).

Bowl Chair by Lina Bo Bardi by Arper (IT)

Italian design brand Arper has put a limited edition of Lina Bo Bardi’s ‘Bowl Chair’, designed in 1951 by the Italian-Brazilian architect, into serial production for the first time.

Designed in 1951 in Bo Bardi’s adopted home of Brazil, the Bowl Chair, never industrialized until now, is an icon of Lina Bo Bardi’s adaptive style.

With the combination of bowl and base, the modular chair can be positioned to perform myriad functions. “Upright and gathered round a coffee table, the chair becomes a catalyst for social interaction; angled downwards, a nest to submerge into with a good book. When set with opening perpendicular to the floor, the chair becomes a cradle for a sheltered nap.” says Arper

“Balancing the worlds of industrialized fabrication and the individualized object, Bo Bardi envisioned the Bardi’s Bowl Chair as flexible in structure while universal and essential in form. But, as with all of Bo Bardi’s designs, the ultimate emphasis remains on the human interaction with the object.”
