Centimetre Rug

Eileen Gray, 1926

Eileen Gray created not only some of the most important furniture classics of the 20th century but also had her own studio where rugs were produced according to her designs: masterpieces of abstract textile art made of 100% pure new wool, hand-knotted and processed to the highest quality. Designed for the Salon of her Villa E1027, the Centimetre Rug highlights the number 10 with a mysterious code – a nod to the tenth letter of the alphabet: J for Jean Badovici, with whom she designed the Villa Maison au Bord de Mer E1027. Numerals and icons – such as fragmentary elements of everyday objects – can be found in Eileen Gray’s rug designs of the later 1920s. They are allusions to her wide interests encountered in her creative life.

Eileen Gray

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. ClassiCon produces her iconic furniture designs as the sole and rightful licensee worldwide, in coordination with Aram Designs Ltd., London.
