Eileen Gray went through a significant change in the course of her career as a designer, from the decorative art of laquering to functional clarity. And yet she never got engulfed by contemporary movements but used them as inspiration and left her own characteristic mark on them. Today many of her classic designs stand equal next to design furniture by Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe et al.
The Daybed is a prime example for Eileen Gray's functional designs. Owing to its pure lines, uncomplicated versatility and, at steelform, premium quality workmanship this true to the original piece of furniture lends itself to public receptions as well as the domestic living area. It naturally invites to occassionally lie on it and standing freely, it allows people seated to face any direction.
