Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Seat of beech frame with rubber webbing. Upholstery: polyurethane with polyester filling. Cover in leather.
It piques and provokes what one might expect of it, and yet it is inexplicably aesthetic and harmonious - a nonconformist on velvet paws. Eileen Gray commented quite pragmatically on her work in typical understatement: "An armrest was omitted in order to leave the body more freedom in movement and to allow it to bend forward or to turn to the other side unrestricted." Seldom was a "nonconformist" more ready to talk.
