Brick Screen

Eileen Gray, 1922-1925

Eileen Gray was fascinated by the beauty of traditional lacquerware. She learned the centuries-old craft from a Japanese artisan and then perfected her skills over the course of many years. Brick Screen is one of her best-known creations. She experimented with various dimensions and panel finishes. More than just a room divider, this folding screen with its understated elegance commands the presence of a sculpture. The fixed and moveable panels are lacquered by hand layer upon layer in a process that takes several weeks, each layer first allowed to dry completely, then sanded by hand and finally polished to an immaculate sheen. This famous piece, coveted by collectors, is part of the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Each screen is signed and given a serial number as proof of authenticity and provenance.

An elaborate masterpiece of craftsmanship, this is the first version of the Brick Screen to be authorised by the licence holder, Aram Designs Ltd., London. Made to order in a limited edition of 75. Each piece is numbered consecutively and bears the Eileen Gray signature. The 28 fixed and movable wooden panels are lacquered by hand layer by layer: each layer is allowed to dry completely, then is sanded by hand and finally polished to an immaculate sheen. Stabilising inner frame made of stainless steel, solid brass end caps.
