Paravent by Eileen Grey
Contemporary screen by French designer Eileen Grey, designed in 1926. During the twenties Eileen Gray perfected a purist style as a result of discussions with representatives of functionalist Modernism, such as Le Corbusier, and through her own profession as an architect. Parallel to the avant-garde of the German Bauhaus she developed furniture still timeless today.
Made by Vereinigte Werkstätten, Munich. The used materials are wood, perforated sheet steel, all painted grey. The sreen is in used condition (some paint flaked on the wooden frame) but is still fully functional (all screen hinges still work). The Paravent has a maker’s stamp.
