Eileen Gray

Eileen Gray

Born into an aristocratic Irish-Scottish family, Eileen Gray traveled to London and Paris to study architecture and design. First, she earned reputation as the leading designer for lacquered walls and decorative panels. Her theories in design and architecture left an undeletable mark on our ideas about life. Today, she’s still regarded as one of the symbols of modernism and she is the only woman to be remembered with Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer.
The peak in Gray’s career was when she received the title “Royal Designer to Industry” given to her by the Royal Society of Art in London in 1972. Moreover, her legendary “Adjustable Table E 1027” was added to the permanent collection of MoMA in New York.
The designer’s lifetime achievements was crowned with a comprehensive solo exhibition at Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2013. The success of this exhibition was followed by the films “Price of Desire” in 2014 and “Gray Matters.”
