Eileen GrayBook - 2003
One of the pioneers of modern design, Eileen Gray spent nearly seventy years of her long and creative life in Paris. Her designs for lacquer screens and furniture, lamps, and carpets were widely appreciated in the Art Deco period, beloved for their comfort, aestheticism, and individuality. Later, as a self-taught architect, she designed two innovative houses in the south of France. This extraordinary, elegant woman, much admired by Le Corbusier and his peers, emerged from obscurity only after her death in 1976, when her designs were recognized for being in perfect harmony with modern sensibilities.
