Tube

Irish-born Eileen Gray was a pioneer of modern design in the 20s and 30s, and her tubular furniture, which was considered revolutionary in its day, is now lauded as classic. The TUBE light is emblematic of this aesthetic, constructed primarily of chromate-plated tubular steel. This chic and simple floor lamp add a touch of modernist flair to any décor.

Design Story

Eileen Gray

Eileen Gray

This Irish artist was one of the pioneers who created what we now call modern design during the 1920s and 1930s.The lone woman in this pioneering Valhalla, her name is pronounced in the same breath as Le Cor­busier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. Her tubular steel furniture was revolutionary in its day, and is now accepted as classic. In the second stage of her creative career, Eileen Gray switched to architecture and continued producing masterpieces. She was an artist of epoch-making significance. 

Her career culminated in 1972 with her appointment by the Royal Society of Art in London, as Royal De­signer to Industry. And her legendary Adjustable Table E 1027 has been added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1978.
