Like the majority of Eileen Gray‘s tables, this one too can transform itself. And as always she found an unexpected solution. The folding section of the tabletop is supported by a single leg out of chromium- plated steel tubing – a conscious break in the otherwise perfect symmetry of the table. It is named after Eileen Gray‘s last home, Lou Perou, which she built at the age of 76 above St. Tropez. The name itself is in memory of a trip to Peru in the year 1929.
Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Part of the tabletop can be lifted up to extend the table. Tabletop made of MDF high-gloss lacquer finish.
