Designer Eileen Gray Featured In A Film

On October 15 in New York a documentary presenting one of the most influential 20th-century modernist designers will be released.

The Architecture & Design Film Festival will celebrate its sixth season in New York with the World Premiere of Marco Orsini’s documentary, Gray Matters. The film presents the story of architect and designer Eileen Gray – from the first steps in her career through middle-age obscurity and back to world recognition. Interviews with Gray’s friends, collaborators and some world’s foremost scholars are featured in the documentary. The plot is built around Gray’s newly restored architectural triumph – the Villa E1027.

“Until very recently, Eileen Gray was one of the greatest unsung design heroes of the 20th century. While we’re delighted to present films on contemporary icons such as Zaha Hadid, Michele de Lucchi, and Michael Graves, this is a special opportunity to share Gray’s important contributions and pioneering spirit with a new generation of design and architecture enthusiasts ” says Architecture & Design Film Festival Founder, Kyle Bergman .
