DESIGN ICON EILEEN GRAY

Eileen Gray

Eileen Gray (1878–1976) is regarded as one of the most important furniture designers and architects of the early 20th century and the most influential woman in those fields.

Eileen Gray

Her work inspired both modernism and Art Deco. Today her enduring work lives on through renowned manufacturer, ClassiCon.

Eileen Gray

Eileen Gray first started her career as a lacquer artist, then a furniture designer and finally as an architect. At a time when other leading designers were mostly all male – she remained dauntlessly independent and focused on her work.

Examples of her early work are in the V&A collection and her E1027 adjustable table is in the permanent design collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; these make a fitting tribute to her contribution to modern design.

Today, she is recognized as one of the finest designers and architects of her day, and her iconic work remains a shining symbol of the modernist movement.
