The 2012 Fall auction season kicks off with a wealth of 20th century design and artwork being offered by all the major houses.
My next feature is Phillips de Pury's Design auction which takes place in London on September 27th. This is the first half of a double-header day for Phillips, with their Nordic Design auction being held immediately after. These are my favorite picks:
A rare sculpted wood table lamp with glass shade by MAX INGRAND.
An Office Cane Chair by PIERRE JEANNERET.
A pair of JEAN PROUVE.demountable Cafétéria chairs from Air France Building in the Congo.
A freeform coffe table by CHARLOTTE PERRIAND and JEAN PROUVE.
A Ruban coffee table in travertine and wrought iron by JEAN ROYÈRE.
A perspex and steel floor lamp by GIO PONTI for ARREDOLUCE.
A walnut and glass coffee table also by GIO PONTI.
Beautiful and lyrical brass chandeliers by both GUGLIELMO ULRICH and ARREDOLUCE.
A set of crystal and brass wall sconces by CARLO SCARPA.
