MATERIALS: 100% silk
DESIGNER: Third Drawer Down x Louise Bourgeois
Introducing the Louise Bourgeois Silk Eye Mask. An insomniac for much of her adult life, the Louise Bourgeois silk eye mask was 'dreamt' up by Third Drawer Down Studio director Abigail Crompton as an ode to the artist who described the state of being asleep as "paradise". The strap reads "Key to insomnia: peace or trust", pulled from the back of one of Bourgeois’s Insomnia drawings from the mid-1990s that was made during the night in an effort to find sleep. The reversible design echoes one of the artist’s fabric drawings from 2003, paying tribute to the artist’s connect to textiles, sewing and also her love of fashion.

The perfect Christmas gift for those art lovers who have it all.

About the Artist:
Louise Bourgeois was a French-born American artist who used her art to work through her experiences and seek calm and strength. She once said, “To give meaning and shape to frustration and suffering. The existence of pain cannot be denied. I propose no remedies or excuses.” Her interior life was often the basis of her work. The feelings she tapped into were universal yet complex and affecting. Third Drawer Down first collaborated with her in 2008 for a retrospective at the Tate Museum. Third Drawer Down has continued an on-going relationship with her trust, The Easton Foundation to produce a series of objects inspired by her work.
