Throughout July, join Museum Educators at the National Museum of Ireland, Decorative Arts & History at Collins Barracks on a variety of engaging family tours exploring the Museum and its collection.
Explore the life and works of famous Irish architect and furniture designer Eileen Gray in our 'Eileen Gray' tour.
The Eileen Gray exhibition posthumously realised one of Gray’s last ambitions – to have her work brought back to Ireland. Regarded as one of the most influential 20th Century designers and architects, the exhibition includes such important items as the adjustable chrome table and the non-conformist chair.
The exhibition also values Gray on a personal level, including family photographs, her lacquering tools, and personal ephemera. It illustrates an account of her professional development from art student in London and Paris to mature, innovative architect.
