Classicon Double X Table

double x table
Design Eileen Gray, 1928
Chromium-plated steel tubing, MDF, wood veneer
Made in Germany by Classicon

When an avant-garde steel tube design meets the classical refectory table, the result is the Double X. A large, yet elegant table, its x-shaped supports make for optimum rigidity. Like so many of Eileen Gray's designs, the Double X is a master of many roles, cutting a fine figure both as a dining room table and as a desk or office table for individualists.

In the 1920's and 30's, Irish artist Eileen Gray was one of the pioneers who created what we now call modern design. The lone woman in this pioneering Valhalla, her name is pronounced in the same breath as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. Her tubular steel furniture was revolutionary in its day, and is now accepted as classic. In the second stage of her creative career, Eileen Gray switched to architecture and continued producing masterpieces. She was an artist of epoch-making significance. Her career culminated in 1972 with her appointment by the Royal Society of Art in London, as Royal Designer to Industry. And her legendary Adjustable Table E 1027 has been added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1978.
