Spaces: Harry Seidler & Associates: Gissing House: 1972

. Thursday, October 11, 2012

Recently coming to market in Wahroonga Australia, this 1972 home by Harry Seidler & Associates has been kept in pristine condition, perfectly preserved, with photos that almost appear straight off the pages of a 1972 Interiors magazine.

The Gissing House is that exceptional thing, a distinguished survivor whose authenticity is uncompromised by time, as if, by some miracle, it was kept captive in a time capsule for the past forty years. - Modern House

The home is furnished with an impressive collection of 20th Century design including: Marcel Breuer Wassily Chairs and Warren Platner Lounge Chairs, both for Knoll; Thonet B9 Le Corbusier Chairs; Arne Jacobsen 3107 chairs for Fritz Hansen, surrounding what appears to be a Florence Knoll table; and Van Keppel & Green outdoor loungers. Many of the consoles, desks, and credenzas are wall-mounted, and the black credenza in the dining room also appears to be illuminated, creating an ethereal floating effect.  The Eames Bird on the mantel adds a nice whimsical finishing touch.
