Irish-born designer and architect Eileen Gray (1878-1976) settled in Paris in 1902 and became a leading figure in the French decorative arts of the 1910s and 1920s, creating luxurious lacquer furniture and carpets, and opening a boutique on the Faubourg St Honore. This is a comprehensive examination of her artistic production, including her early furniture and interior designs, and the beginnings of her architectural career, through a six-year collaboration with Rumanian architect Jean Badovici from 1926 to 1932.

Buchbeschreibung Phaidon Verlag Gmbh Okt 2000, 2000. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Extremely private and unprepossessing, Irish-born designer Eileen Gray (1878-1976) has remained an elusive subject despite her lasting influence. Known primarily for her highly original furniture and interior design, Gray realized nine buildings in her lifetime and recorded more than forty-five architectural projects in her archive, although until recently several of her built projects were attributed solely to her collaborator, Romanian architect Jean Badovici. 256 pp. Englisch.
