Eileen Gray created not only classical seats such as sofas or chairs, but also a series of unconventional bar stools. Version no. 2, originally designed for the house E 1027, also featured in her Paris apartment in Rue Bonaparte. In her Provencal country home, Tempe ä Pailla in Castellar, she used a ʹBar Stoolʹ as a nonconformist seat at her drawing desk – another charming example of the versatility of Eileen Gray‘s functional design.

Eileen Gray’s achievement in design and architecture is considered pioneering work of Modernism. During her lifetime, she was honoured by the London Royal Society for Arts with the title Royal Designer for Industry, and she is one of few women mentioned in the same breath as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer.
