The masterful pieces of the architect and designer Eileen Gray are icons of the world of design, some exhibited at the MoMA of New York.

They represent the skill, functionality and delicacy of the artist in each piece, which made her a reference of the 20th century.

Edited by ClassiCon and designed by Eileen Gray in 1926, the Bibendum armchair was inspired by the Michelin Man, created almost 30 years earlier.

An almost centennial armchair, captivating despite its proportions, and surprising for the time.

A timeless piece that rises on a glossy chromed tubular steel structure and semi-elliptical base.

The frame is made of beech wood with elastic straps.

The seat and backrest resemble three stacked tires, tremendously comfortable and made of polyurethane and polyester fiber.

Cozy, captivating, incomparable and versatile, initially done with an elegant leather upholstery.

Nowadays you can choose the base in different colors of the RAL chart, and there are different options of fabrics and leathers for the seat and backrest.

Its minimalist aesthetic makes this charismatic design by Eileen Gray, handmade in Italian workshops, perfect to give that touch of distinction to spaces for both public and private use.
