Folding Screen, Eileen Gray 1930
The high-tech look that arose in the 1980s and which is still potentially current had an ingenious predecessor. Over half a century ago, Eileen Gray anticipated the cool industrial aesthetic of modern technology with the Folding Screen and her fluorescent lighting fixture Tube Light. Her softly curved, four-leaf folding screen with its perforated metal panels will also survive the stylistic trends of future decades undamaged. Indeed, there are forms upon which no one can improve.
Four-piece, foldable screen. Wooden frame with two differing perforated panels. High-gloss lacquer finish. Details and colours see price list.
