It piques and provokes what one might expect of it, and yet the Non Conformist Armchair is inexplicably aesthetic and harmonious - a nonconformist on velvet paws. Eileen Gray commented quite pragmatically on her work with 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.” Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Seat has a beech frame with rubber webbing. Upholstery of polyurethane with polyester fibre. Cover in leather.
