It piques and provokes what one might expect of it, and yet it is inexplicably aesthetic and harmonious - a nonconformist on velvet paws. Eileen Gray commented quite pragmatically on her work in typical understatement: "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." Seldom was a 'nonconformist' more ready to talk.

In the 1920's and 30's, Irish artist Eileen Gray was one of the pioneers who created what we now call modern design. The lone woman in this pioneering Valhalla, her name is pronounced in the same breath as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. Her tubular steel furniture was revolutionary in its day, and is now accepted as classic. In the second stage of her creative career, Eileen Gray switched to architecture and continued producing masterpieces. She was an artist of epoch-making significance. Her career culminated in 1972 with her appointment by the Royal Society of Art in London, as Royal Designer to Industry. And her legendary Adjustable Table E 1027 has been added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1978.
