An exhibition of work by Irish designer Eileen Gray is to go on display at a museum in Paris, celebrating her impact on modernist architecture.Centre Pompidou in Paris

Taking place at the Centre Pompidou in Paris from 20 February – 20 May, the exhibition will feature some of her most notable and unique pieces of furniture in lacquer, chrome and precious woods, photographs, collages and abstract canvases.

Thousands are expected to visit the exhibition over the course of its stay, with many sure to combine it with a break in one of many Paris hotels available.

It is being billed as an ‘exhaustive homage’ to one of the true pioneers of the Modern Movement in architecture and an avant-garde woman who succeeded in a predominately male environment.

Just one of many exhibitions taking place throughout the French capital over the coming months, it adds further credence to the claim that Paris remains the epicentre of cultural and artistic bliss.
