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.
The Folding Screen looks lightweight due to the perforated sheet metal’s transmittance of light. It serves as a partition wall and design element of modern interior 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.
