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.

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.
