Fresh Finds: Charlotte Perriand, Poul Kjærholm, Bitossi, Stilnovo + More

. Sunday, November 20, 2011

Rare early examples of Poul Kjaerholm's PK1 in bent steel and handwoven wicker, the first of Kjaerholm's designs to be produced by Ejvid Kold Christensen. These examples were crafted during the initial production series of 1956-1960.

Impressed to top rail: Denmark.

A fine pair of Charlotte Perriand's folded metal wall lamps with pivoting shades. Manufactured and retailed by Galerie Steph Simon.

Both examples signed with labels: SCE Made in France.

An impressive table lamp featuring lyrical brass detailing, perforated bias-cut cone shade, and articulated reflector.

From an unknown studio, with Arredoluce and Arteluce having both produced similar models.

A fine pair of minimalist single-drawer nightstands in the style of Harvey Probber, sheathed in walnut veneer and floating on legs of solid brass.

A rare and impressive pair of side tables sheathed in tessellated fossilized coral stone with inlaid brass detailing.

These tables are exceptional examples of a movement championed by Karl Springer and Maitland Smith in the 70s and 80s, rooted in Jean Michel Frank's philosophy of combining luxury materials and old world craftsmanship, with clean lined modernist forms.

Both signed with labels: MAITLAND SMITH.

Asahara Sigheaki's minimalist Palemar floor lamp, featuring a tripod base and articulated parabolic shade.

Signed with embossement: STILNOVO: MADE IN ITALY.

Literature: Repertorio Del Design Italiano, 1950-2000, Giuliana Gramigna, Volume 2.

Subtle bamboo detailing adds a touch of glam to this otherwise minimalist 1970's coffee table of sleek chrome and glass.

A bold graphic ceramic bull from Bitossi Studios. This is a rare pattern that was also utilized on Howard Miller's Meridian Series Clock, Model 7589.

Signed with impressed mark: ITALY.

All via Modern Love, with many more great finds to come.
