Overview

Eileen Gray Bibendum Chair. Inspired by the designer: Eileen Gray.

Description

Designed by Eileen Gray in the early 1900s, the Bibendum chair was forgot ten until an original surfaced in a 1972 auction prompting a new production of this design classic.

The impact of such designers as Le Corbusier, Jean Badovici and Marcel Breuer on Eileen Gray’s life can be seen through many of her designs that were installed at the E-1027 house in Roquebrune, near Monaco. This famed Bibendum chair and adjustable glass table were two of the furniture pieces that were designed specifically for this home.

The Eileen Gray Bibendum chair, named by Gray herself, joins the cigarette table as one of her most widely recognized designs. It is one of several designs that typify Gray's opulent take on the stark modernist aesthetic.
