Ireland/Monaco/USA/France/Germany • 2014 Documentary/Biography • 76 mins

This documentary explores the fascinating life and complicated career of Irish architect and designer Eileen Gray, whose uncompromising vision defined and defied the practice of modernism in decoration, design and architecture. Making a reputation with her traditional lacquer work in the first decade of the 20th century, she became a critically acclaimed and sought after furniture designer and decorator before reinventing herself as an architect. A great choice for Art students studying Design and Craftwork.
