Fresh Finds + New Site: Part 1: Warren Platner, Eames, Carl Aubock + more

. Wednesday, September 19, 2012

I've added a fair number of new finds recently added to the gallery, so this week I've split Fresh Finds into 2 parts. You will also notice a total renovation to the site, and I hope you enjoy the new format.

Part 1:

Introduced in 1966, this fine and rare example of Platner's sculptural arm chair dates to the earliest years of production. in 1967 Art Metal, a firm which in 1959 purchased Florence Knoll's interests in Knoll Associates, was sold to Heller. In 1969 Knoll Associates was renamed Knoll International. These two events in Knoll's timeline, and the presence of the Art Metal/Knoll Associates label, help date this chair to the first 2 years of production.

This example features a highly unusual black painted finish, which is believed to be original and identical to Knoll's black Bertoia wire chairs of the same period.

Handcrafted in warm and lustrous brass, this fine Carl Aubock triple candleholder is a rare form.

An exquisite handcrafted box carved from solid rosewood, featuring a series of brass stripes perfectly inlayed to the contour of the lid.   The hollowed interior recalls the oeuvre of Alexandre Noll, who may  have influenced the unknown creator of this work.

Classic Eames sculptural side chairs in creamy white fiberglass. Several available, please inquire if ordering sets. Signed with embossed HERMAN MILLER factory marks, some examples with ink date stamps 1969.

All via the new Modern Love, with many more great finds to come in Part 2.
