Eileen Gray created not only some of the
most important furniture classics of the 20th century but also had her
own studio where rugs were produced according to her designs:
masterpieces of abstract textile art made of 100% pure new wool,
hand-knotted and processed to the highest quality. Designed for the
Salon of the Villa E1027, the Centimetre Rug highlights the number 10
with a mysterious code – a nod to the tenth letter of the alphabet: J
for Jean Badovici, with whom she designed the Villa Maison au Bord de
Mer E1027. Numerals and icons – such as fragmentary elements of everyday
objects – can be found in Eileen Gray’s rug designs of the later 1920s.
They are allusions to her wide interests encountered in her creative
Rug from 100% pure wool. Coloured with natural vegetable dyes. Hand-knotted with 80 knots per square inch (12.5 cm²).
