The most comprehensive biography of Irish-born Eileen Gray – architect, photographer, interior and furniture designer – one of the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Gray’s philosophy, world and work is presented through stunning images and rarely seen material from the collection at the National Museum of Ireland.

In this penetrating and thoroughly researched book, Jennifer Goff draws on newly available archival material on Eileen Gray. Goff explores the myriad  of influences behind Gray's work in her artistic practice, her furniture and carpets, and her architecture. The book elaborates on Le Corbusier's role as mentor to her early development as an architect, Gray's relentless pursuit of perfection in her work during the later years of her life, and most appropriately, her ongoing self-identification as Irish.
