The Latin for furniture, ‘res mobiles’, is based on the word mobile. Eileen Gray took this very literally. She loved light, functional furniture that one could move around without problem. One can lift this table ‘for all occasions’ as if it had a handle and carry it exactly to where one needs it. Like the Adjustable Table E 1027, it is constructed such as to slide the base under the bedside or armchair. Thus breakfast or bedtime reading is within comfortable reach.
The Occasional Table was designed in 1927 by Eileen Gray. It is produced by ClassiCon after the original design, the licence holder of which is Aram Designs Ltd, London. The side table is available with round or rectangular tabletops. The frame is made of chrome-plated steel tube. The tabletops are made of MDF high-gloss lacquer finish and available in china red, black, grey or white.
