Commentaire : Zeev Aram recounts this stay about this table: 'While working on the E1027 Table prototype in 1974 Eileen was very keen to include a tinted glass top in the range. Tinted glass was not available to her in the
1920s, and she had tried using cellophane glued to clear glass instead, but the cellophane always peeled away. On one of her many visits to the Aram showroom she wanted to see some tinted glass. We
looked at four different tables with tinted glass tops on different floors. After seeing all of these Eileen immediately pronounced that she wanted the
colour of the first top with the tone of the third top. These tinted glass tops were very similar, and most architects and designers would have required
the samples to be next to each other to see these
differences and make a decision. Eileen had an extraordinary visual memory (even with one eye at the time) such that she did not need to do that'.
