Eileen Gray

Eileen Gray was a prominent furniture designer, interior designer and architect from Enniscorthy, County Wexford, Ireland. After studying painting and an apprenticeship at a lacquer shop in London, Gray moved to Paris in 1902, where she opened her own gallery in 1922. During the 1920s and 1930s she became one of the leading exponents of the revolutionary new theories of design and construction, and she worked closely with many of the outstanding figures of the modern movement, including Le Corbusier and J.J.P Oud. Eileen Gray died in Paris in 1976.

“Eileen Gray's designs are now as familiar as designs from the other important early 20th Century architects and designers such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer et al” - Zeev Aram
