Eileen Gray not only created some of the most iconic 20th century furniture classics but also ran a studio where rugs were produced based on her designs. Some of her most beautiful designs are part of the rug collection by ClassiCon. Monolith is based on Eileen Gray’s gouaches and pencil drawings from the 1920s. The design is characterised by beige horizontal and vertical lines of varying lengths that elegantly accentuate the earthy dark grey background. In some places, the lines cross without touching and suggest a structure that seems to divide the rug into square spaces of different sizes. Hand-knotted from the finest 100% new wool and produced to the highest quality in Nepal, Monolith is yet another impressive design that brings the artistic work of the Irish designer into focus.
Things must not only look right, they must also feel right.

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.
The "Eileen Gray - Non Conformist" exhibition will be extended until 26 February!!
