Jean, named after Eileen Gray’s intimate friend of many years, the architect Jean Badovici, stood in various models in their summer villa E 1027. “Every room has at its disposal one of these tables,” wrote Eileen Gray, “that at the same time can serve as a desk. For entertaining one moves all the pieces together, unfolds them and what follows is a very large dining table, light yet absolutely stable.” There is nothing more to say.
