An elegant dash of humor is expressed by the Roattino Floor Lamp’s S-shaped bent steel stand, which rests on a black-lacquered base. Designed in 1931 by Eileen Gray, the Roattino has a jaunty fabric shade that evokes a woman’s asymmetrical hat from the era of the lamp’s design. Gray’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection and her designs have been featured in ten exhibitions at the Museum, including a retrospective in 1980 and Designing Modern Women 1890–1980 in 2010.

Anglo-Irish architect and furniture designer Eileen Gray (1878–1976) was a pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture. One of her most famous work—the E-1027 house in Roquerbrune-Cap-Martin, France—was intended as a peaceful retreat for her and her then-lover, Romanian architect and critic Jean Badovici. The house features bright murals painted by Le Corbusier, who was reportedly obsessed with the house. Gray's work represented in the Museum's collection includes her Adjustable Table from 1927 (created for her 1027 house), and her designs have been featured in many MoMA exhibitons, the earliest being Recent Acquisitions: Architecture and Design in 1979 as well as in the more recent exhibitions, Designing Modern Women 1890–1990 (2013–2014) and How Should We Live? Propositions for the Modern Interior (2016–2017.)
