EILEEN GRAY: DESIGNER AND ARCHITECT

A Film by J=C3=B6rg Bundschuh

Eileen Gray (1878-1976) was always ahead of her time. Thirty years after =
her death, she is still considered as the very essence of the Modern. =
Everyone has seen her furniture-including the famous Adjustable Table, =
the Lota Sofa, and the Tube Light-but most people don't really know the =
designer and architect who created them.

Born to an aristocratic family of Irish-Scottish heritage, Gray studied =
at the Slade School of Fine Arts in London before moving to Paris in =
1902 where she continued her studies and, in a revolt against prevailing =
art nouveau conventions, mastered lacquer work and established the =
Galerie Jean D=C3=A9sert, where she sold her avant-garde, luxury =
furniture pieces intended both to fulfill a function and to inspire the =
spirit.

EILEEN GRAY-DESIGNER AND ARCHITECT also examines the history of her =
architectural creations, including E.1027, one of the most famous houses =
in architectural history, built in Roquebrune, France, in 1926. This =
modernist seaside villa-an L-shaped, flat-roofed building with =
floor-to-ceiling windows and a spiral staircase, utilizing natural light =
and ventilation-was designed, said Gray, for a "minimum of space and =
maximum of comfort." E.1027 has today been declared a French national =
monument and is presently being restored.

Using archival footage, excerpts from Gray's own writings, plus =
interviews with Jennifer Goff, Curator of the National Museum of =
Ireland, which houses a permanent Gray exhibition, Philippe Garner of =
Christie's auction house, and Zeev Aram, Chairman of Aram Designs in =
London, who today produces reproductions of Gray's furniture, EILEEN =
GRAY chronicles this resolutely independent designer's artistic =
formation and bohemian lifestyle, her extensive travels and influences, =
the development of her distinctive designs, and her relations with =
fellow artists and architects such as Jean Badovici, Seizo Sugawara and =
Le Corbusier.
