Frame in sectional steel, mounted on a steelbase, lacquered in black or cream white. Two brushed stainless steel-bars. Upholstery: polyurethane with polyester filling, cover in leather.

Eileen Gray created not only classical seats such as sofas or chairs, but also a series of three unconventional bar stools. Version no. 2, originally designed for the house E 1027, also featured in her Paris apartment in Rue Bonaparte. In her Provencal country home, Tempe à Pailla in Castellar, she used a barstool as a nonconformist seat at her drawing desk – another charming example of the versatility of Eileen Gray’s functional design.
