A sleek and chic dining set featuring chrome and brass plated steel, smoked glass, and 6 velvet upholstered chairs. In the style of Romeo Rega, a leading Italian figure who alongside Gabriella Crespi, Willy Rizzo, and Maison Jansen, championed 1970s Modernist Glam. Signed with Made in Italy and Italian quality control labels.

A monumental arc lamp designed by the Guzzini studio, featuring an 8-foot tall arc and a heavy cube base made of solid polished carrera marble. The dome shade is comprised of translucent acrylic and brushed steel, and features both interior and exterior illumination.

This is a rare example with a brass plated finish to both the arc and shade.

A rare and sleek collapsible vanity by Studio Kastilia featuring a soft upholstered seat, pivoting mirror, and removable trays.

Comprised of plasticized brass elements that interlock via clips, allowing manipulation into a variety of compositions. It was this system that formed the basis of many of Paco Rabanne's clothing designs, turning the architecture-trained designer into the enfant terrible of 1960s French fashion.

An Italian Modernist serving tray, featuring a refined composition of smoked glass and brushed brass.

Via Modern Love, with many more great finds to come.
