Designer Eileen GrayEileen Gray had Scottish-Irish origins. When her father died in 1900, she had already been living in London for two years and was attending drawing lessons at "Slade School of Fine Art". She discovered D. Charles laboratory, a painter specialized in lacquer work. She worked with him and learned all the fundamentals she needed for the whole period of her professional career. In 1902 she went to Paris where she kept specializing in the drawing art and in oriental lacquers. Here she met Sugawara, a Japanese with whom she perfected her lacquers knowledge. She was noticed by the great tailor Jacques Doucet, an art collector that hired her to furnish his entire house. She also realized two tables and a screening, her only dated and signed works. Her first big work was Madame Lévy's furniture (the famous hat designer Suzanne Talbot) in Rue de Lota. In 1922 she opened, in the elegant Rue Faubourg St. Honoré, the "Jean Désert" gallery where she displayed and sold furniture, screenings and lamps. After four years of intense studies, advised by theorist Jean Badovici, she built in Roguebrune, on the Mediterranean coast, a house for herself: wide and practical, with many different thoughtful and funny details. Also Badovic apartment in Paris and her second house in Castellar on the riviera are an attestation of Gray's intelligence and creativity richness. Not long before her death she had the satisfaction of displaying some of her most significant works at "Musée Des Arts Decoratifs" in Paris.

Interior Designer's Opinion

Eileen GrayEileen Gray

Eileen Gray ebbe origini scozzesi-irlandesi. Quando il padre morì nel 1900 si trovava già da due anni a Londra e frequentava corsi di disegno alla "Slade School". Scoprì il laboratorio di D. Charles, un pittore specializzato in lacche. Collaborò con lui e imparò tutto quello che serviva per il periodo della sua carriera professionale.
Nel 1902 andò a Parigi dove continuò a perfezionarsi nell'arte del disegno e delle lacche orientali. Qui incontrò il giapponese Sugawara con cui perfezionò la conoscenza dell'uso della lacca. Venne notata dal grande sarto Jacques Doucet, un intenditore e collezionista d'arte che le affidò il compito di arredargli la nuova casa. Ha realizzato per Doucet due tavoli e un paravento, le uniche sue opere datate e firmate.
Il primo grande lavoro fu l'arredamento di Madame Lévy (la famosa nodista Suzanne Talbot) in Rue de Lota. Nel 1922 inaugurò nell'elegante Rue Faubourg St. Honoré la galleria "Jean Désert" in cui espose e vendette i suoi mobili, paraventi e lampade. Dopo quattro anni di intensi studi, consigliata dal teorico Jean Badovici, costruì a Roquebrune, sulla costa del Mediterraneo, una casa per se stessa: vasta e pratica, con molti particolari ragionatissimi e spiritosi. Anche l'appartamento per Badovici a Parigi e la propria seconda casa a Castellar sulla riviera, testimoniano l'intelligenza e la ricchezza inventiva della Gray. Poco prima della sua morte ha avuto la soddisfazione di una mostra dei suoi lavori più significativi al "Musée Des Arts Decoratifs" di Parigi.
