An intimate and inventively presented biography of Eileen Gray, an industrial designer who made revolutionary work with lacquer and whose architectural opus, E1027, has long been incorrectly attributed to Le Corbusier.
Meet Eileen Gray, the architect behind the monumental E-1027 and pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture. In 1924, work began in earnest on a small villa by the sea in the south of France. Nearly a century later, this structure has become a monument for modern design. However, like so many gifted female artists, Eileen Gray’s story has been eclipsed by the men with whom she collaborated – this story puts the focus back on Gray and her mastery of design. Dzierzawska’s exquisite visuals bring to life the tale of a young Irish designer whose dedication and desire to create came to flourish during the ‘Annees Folles’ of early 20th century Paris.
