Third Drawer Down
Silk Portrait Eye Mask by Louise Bourgeois x Third Drawer Down
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' Insomnia drawings from the mid-1990s - that were made during the night in an effort to find sleep. The reversible design echoes one of the artists fabric drawings from 2003, paying tribute to the artists connect to textiles, sewing and also her love of fashion.

Louise Bourgeois was a French-born American artist who gained recognition late in her long career. Throughout her life, she created many psychologically charged abstract sculptures, drawings and prints. She lived until the age of 98. Third Drawer Down first collaborated with her in 2008 for a retrospective at the Tate Museum.
