Nordic Design will be the focus of Phillips de Pury London's upcoming November 17th auction. For this event, Phillips has asked acclaimed architect Lee Mindel to curate the collection. If you are a follower of this blog, then you should be very familiar with Mindel's firm Shelton Mindel and Associates, as I've featured their projects on numerous occasions. The result of this collaboration is an collection of works both exceptional and refined. These are my favorite picks:
A fine leather armchair, from the Göteborg Law Courts by ERIK GUNNAR ASPLUND.
A unique fire screen by OLOF HULT.
Pair of ‘Klismos’ chairs, from the Courthouse, Frederiksberg by KAJ GOTTLOB.
A button tufted stool by PEDER MOOS.
Tufted sofa, for the Radiohuset, Frederiksberg by VILHELM LAURITZEN.
KAARE KLINT's classic Propeller stool.
POUL KJÆRHOLM's Suspended sofa and stools.
PAAVO TYNELL floor lamps.
POUL HENNINGSEN's Spiral wall and pendant lamps.
Set of eight drawer units, for the Royal Hotel for SAS, Copenhagen, by ARNE JACOBSEN.
Make sure to see the equally beautiful online catalogue of the sale, which features some of Mindel's photography, also for sale.
