Gueridon J.M.

Design Charlotte Perriand

LIKE A RARE TRAY

A designer low table crafted in 1953 by Charlotte Perriand takes inspiration from the traditional Japanese tray with support base, used to serve meals during formal receptions.

This multi-purpose low table was designed in 1953 by Charlotte Perriand for the residence of her husband who was, at the time, head of Air France's Japanese division in Tokyo. Only nine examples of this stackable table were originally produced, and are inspired by the traditional black lacquered trays set on the floor and used to serve food at official receptions in Japan. The Gueridon J.M. individual table was crafted from one sheet of aluminium, the slot on either side designed to soften the overall look. Epitomising the exquisite craftsmanship proprietary to Cassina, this contemporary take on the Gueridon J.M. comprises a complex procedure where the leather is tailored to the moulded fiberglass base.
