With its dramatic, swooping armrest, stylish, shaped steel legs and soft, comforting seat, the version of Eileen Gray's legendary 1925 Non-Conformist Chair evokes all of the breathtaking individuality of the original, while also retaining the spirit and comfort of that very first design. With one soft, padded armrest that can support the full weight of the sitter as they lounge to their heart's content, and a sloping metal armrest to keep the structure secure and stable, it is a real sculptural delight. And with three colours of premium leather upholstery to choose from, it is a must for any true design-addict.
THE STORY BEHIND THE EILEEN GRAY NON-CONFORMIST CHAIR
Eileen Gray was a committed individualist, whose constant mission was to take the familiar and re-invent it. So when she turned her attentions toward the armchair genre in the mid-20s, she decided to take the basic form to pieces and re-build it with a new persepective. This resulted in its iconic, unique shape. As she herself said: "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." The result of doing this was a chair that blends sleek, sophisticated Art Deco style with classic lounge chair comfort. Even today, almost 100 years since it was first conceived, it retains all of its panache, drama and effortless style in homes across the world.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
1878 (Ireland) -1976 (France)
Irish born, Kathleen Eileen Moray Gray was a furniture designer, architect and pioneer of the modern movement. Considering the era she lived in, this was a quite an accomplishment for a woman in a very male dominated industry. Gray was a great admirer of Charles Le Corbusier and his influences can be seen in her self-built French summerhouse, which was also named E1027.
