Famous Women of Modernity - Eileen Gray

Mon, 12.12.2022
19:00 - 20:00
The pioneer of modern design
Eileen Gray is one of the most famous women in craft and design history. She breaks with all conventions, remains independent and never joins a personality of modern architecture like Le Corbusier. She is considered a pioneer of modernism and goes her own way professionally, which is not a matter of course in her time as a woman. She criticises the architecture of the avant-garde as too intellectual and soulless and fights for a design with spirit and heart. She designed "E1027", the only house of classical modernism planned and built by a woman alone. Eileen Gray's furniture and architecture have made history.
