Eileen Gray's understatedly elegant 'Brick Screen'

An undoubted pioneer of modern design, Gray was particularly interested in the centuries-old techniques and beauty of the traditional Japanese lacquerware. Having acquired her skills, she applied them to what would later become one of her most famous creations, the ‘Brick Screen’.

A true collector’s item, the hand-sanded and hand-laquered, painstakingly finished screen takes weeks to create and it is ClassiCon’s latest addition to the series of Gray’s design masterpieces reproduced by the manufacturer. The understatedly elegant screen was presented at this year’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile and it is is the first version authorised by The Worldwide Licence Holder Aram Designs Ltd., London.
