Eileen Gray was born in Ireland in 1878 but got her studies in painting at the Slade School of Fine Arts in London, and later moved with her family to France in 1907, where she lived and worked until 1976 when she passed away.

She started her work by experimenting with different lacquer techniques, but soon got interested in designing industrial objects, particularly furnishing pieces, and later, influenced by Le Corbusier and Jean Badovici, got interested into developing architectural projects. She was a pioneer in developing the aesthetics of the International Style. Her designs were always signed by simply and refined shapes, minimalistic appeal, and originality.

For the Italian brand ALIVAR she designed the side table 419 with chrome-plated or painted tubular steel frame, with a base and top in MDF with a scratchproof lacquer finish.

A beautiful modern piece to keep besides a sofa.

It is proposed in two sizes and finishing:

W54,5 x H76,5 x D64 cm     

W46 x H66,5 x D56,5 cm     

Best wishes,
