The Eileen Gray Tube Light is one of the most popular lamps until today. Her minimalist standing lamp from the 1930’s had a column of tubular steel alongside a long tube light. High quality chromed frame. A basic floor lamp with great formal elegance, the “Tube Light” was designed by Eileen Gray in 1927. The strict and simple line, the tubular structure in chrome steel and the search for absolutely clean form (as in the Adjustable Table and Daybed, but also in Bibendum) is once again evident of Gray’s stylistic migration in those years from Art Déco toward “functionalist” design with materials and technological solutions adapted from industry and aeronautics.This tendency was surely related to her deep friendship with Le Corbusier and her association with with the other artists and designers, with whom she created the Union des Artistes Modernes. Along with the E1027 table, the Tube Light is on permanent exhibit at MoMa in New York.
