December is finally upon us. With it brings the best of the best in design artifacts, as the auction houses bring their finest consignments to the market to close the year.
We now head west to visit Los Angeles Modern Auction's 20th Anniversary Auction, taking place on December 16th. These are my favorite picks:
A rare chess table by ISAMU NOGUCHI, which is as much art as it is design.
A multi-colored set of HERBERT KRENCHEL steel Krenit bowls.
Octal-B by VICTOR VASARELY.
A lithographed Berlin Dream pendant lamp by JONATHAN BOROFSKY.
A Freeform walnut coffee table by GEORGE NAKASHIMA.
EDWARD WORMLEY's magnificent Listen To Me chaise lounge.
A classic ARREDOLUCE Triennale Floor Lamp.
EERO SAARINEN's Grasshopper lounge chair for Knoll.
A rare articulating MAA chair, home office desk, and rare plant stand, all by GEORGE NELSON ASSOCIATES.
A rare GRETA GROSSMAN coffee table win walnut and brass-plated stainless steel.
A rare bentwood leg Swan chair by ARNE JACOBSEN.
