Some amazing 20th Century lighting is being offered in Phillips de Pury's upcoming April 28th Design Auction. Some of my favorite pieces include:
An illuminated Porcuspino sculpture by MARZIO CECCHI.
A beautiful pair of desk lamps, and a lyrical chandelier, both by in polished brass, and both by PAAVO TYNELL.
A SERGE MOUILLE Totem floor lamp.
A giant spiraling wall lamp by POUL HENNINGSEN, made for the Concert Hall, Scala Theater, Arhus, Denmark.
A rare variation of ANGELO LELLI's reflector ceiling light.
And a Mouille-reminiscent 5-arm wall light by GINO SARFATTI.
