Reconstruction of the textile surfaces at the villa
(E.1027 is the label used for the residence of Irish designer and architect Eileen Gray, which she planned together with the Romanian architect Jean Badovici. It was completed in 1929. There are no preserved textiles from this villa; the work is done exclusively on the basis of blackand white photographs from different archives.)
