The non-conformist

July 22, 2009

Our “non-conformist chair” by Eileen Gray sits comfortably against the iroko timber. Its my best friends choice of chair in our house especially when she was pregnant!  Eileen Gray said “An armrest was omitted in order to leave the body more freedom in movement and to allow it to bend forward or to turn to the other side unrestricted.”
Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Seat of beech frame with rubber webbing. Upholstery: polyurethane with polyester filling. Cover in leather.

Kathleen Eileen Moray Gray(August 9,1878 – October 21,1976) was an Irish furniture designer and architect and a pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture. She was born in Enniscorthy, Co.Wexford.
