Eileen Gray, the Irish-born designer who was active in France during the 1910s and ‘20s, is considered one of the more talented figures in the history of modern design. She was the first European artist to adapt Asian lacquer techniques to furniture, a talented interior designer, and an avant-gardist whose house E1027, built in the French Riviera, is considered a masterpiece of Modernist domestic architecture. In a panel discussion — which includes Cloé Pitiot, curator at Centre Pompidou in Paris; Jennifer Goff, curator at the National Museum of Ireland; Adriana Friedman, DeLorenzo Gallery; and Sandra Gering, founder of the Friends of E1027 — design historian and educator Daniella Ohad will moderate and address the question: “Eileen Gray: Why Now?”
