Modern Love 20th Century 6: Round Three is now open for bids

. Sunday, December 6, 2009

20th Century 6 is the 6th annual online auction of design and decorative arts to benefit cancer research. A portion of every winning bid in this sale will be donated to the cause. Held in support of the Canadian Cancer Society, every item sold will help generate vital funding for promoting educational materials on prevention, and help fund emotional support programs for those living with cancer during all phases of their illness, from diagnosis through treatment and surgery, and well into recovery.

The 3rd round of items are now listed on eBay.

All item listings will close December 9.

Newest items to go live include this set of Christopher Wool screenprinted skateboard decks by Supreme, a 1970s film festival poster for the Giornate del Cinema Italiano (Days of Italian Cinema, which was later renamed the Venice Biennale), a 1970s poster for Fredrico Fellini's La Citta delle Donne (City of Women) designed by Gemma Fioretini + Michela Papadia, an amazing 1960's wall sculpture/tapestry by an unknown artist, and a nice vintage copy of Rankin's RankinWorks.

Also shown are some items from Round 1 and 2: A solid walnut modernist clock by Seth Thomas, a pair of France & Son lounge chairs by Ole Gjerlov-Knudsen and Torben Lind, a rare Fritz Hansen model 4101 chair designed by Hans Wegner, a sculptural Finn Juhl FJ 51 lounge chair, a rare Poul Volther Spindle-Back chair, a Lightolier Glass Rod chandlier most likely designed by Gaetano Sciolari, a gilt coffee table by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings and a matching French styled modernist floor lamp, and an unusual table lamp with a parasol shade by the obscure Italian Studio Evoluzione.

The only lot left is a beautiful pair of leather and walnut Paul McCobb lounge chairs, which did actually arrive last week....unfortunately without their seat cushions. If the cushions are found in time, there will be a final listing on December 8th to run 24hrs. We'll see what happens.
