Eileen Gray
Largely underappreciated during her career, Eileen Gray's work was a source of inspiration to Modernists and the art deco movement. Her distinctive luxurious take on the geometric forms used by her contemporaries Le Corbusier, Charlotte Periand and Mies van der Rohe resulted in pieces like the Bibendum chair and classic E.1027 table.
