Provided with unique vision and sensibility, Eileen Gray was a remarkable lacquer artist, furniture designer and finally architect, which influenced both modernism and Art Deco.
Leading an independent career, she had some difficulties establishing herself as a respected professional.
Gray’s designs were elegant interpretations of the International Style aesthetics and ideals, shared by Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand and Mies Van Der Rohe. She created memorable pieces, such as the circular glass E-1027 table and the leather and tubular steel Bibendum Chair.
