Eileen Gray


Sun 15 Nov 2020

Zoom lecture by Dr Lis Darby. Eileen Gray (1878–1976) was an extraordinarily versatile and creative figure of the 1910s to 1930s. She spent most of her working life in Paris and managed to operate successfully within the male-dominated professions of architecture and design. Gray’s designs for furniture and lighting demonstrated an experimental and original approach to form and materials and will constitute the focus of this lecture. Dr Darby’s book Re-Issue, Re-Imagine, Re-Make: Appropriation in Contemporary Furniture Design is published by Lund Humphries in September 2020.
