The Irish architect and designer Eileen Gray studied the art of Japanese lacquer working in Paris with Seizo Sugarawa. Sugarawa was a Japanese artisan who had come to Paris to repair lacquer work exhibited in the Exposition Universelle of 1900. Gray became one of the first Westerners to work with true East Asian lacquer. She applied the traditional technique to her own contemporary furniture designs. Eileen Gray created then some among the very best pieces of furniture of the Art Deco period.
