Eileen Gray : new Irish Stamps 2015


On the 13th of August 2015 An Post issued four stamps in celebration of Ireland’s preeminent furniture designer & architect.

Kathleen Eileen Moray Gray (1878–1976) was an Irish furniture designer and architect and a pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture. She was, undeniably, a designer of genius, and her work traversed the Art Deco period and the Modernist Movement, leaving a mark on the 20th century and, along with Le Corbusier and Mies Van Der Rohe, she defined modernity.
