This is the new paperback version of an in-depth study of the Irish-born designer Eileen Gray (1878-1976), a contemporary of Pierre Chareau and Charlotte Perriand. The book explored nine realized buildings and more than 45 architectural projects from Gray's archive, including villa E. 1027 on the coast of southern France. It examines her highly original furniture and interior design, including sumptuous lacquer furniture influenced by traditional French decorative arts. This monograph places Gray in the context of contemporary movements in design and architecture as well as the social and cultural history of the twentieth century. It also includes a wealth of archival material, plans, drawings, and photographs, including many of Gray's own.
