We are delighted to announce the launch of the 2012 DeTnk Collectible Design Market Report, a holistic analysis of the emerging collectible design market.
The basis of the Market Report is sales data from the past 6 years from five of the world’s largest auction houses.
Some key findings of the report include details of the average yearly market growth and the varying regional impact of the design market.
This information is paired with opinions and essays from specialists reflecting the driving forces behind the greater design market.
The report includes the following original articles to provide in-depth and varied insights into the evolving design market:
'Rise of the Patron'
by Melanie Gerlis
'Design After Ego'
by Edwin Heathcote
'Design Beyond Luxury'
by Emma Crichton-Miller
The report also includes the DeTnk Design Index which takes into account the total value of sales and percentage bought-in at auction to summarise a massive quantity of data into one simple number; providing a reference to the market’s climate and allowing one to compare the market between years.
Finally, the report also includes the DeTnk Top 100 listing. The listing takes into
account the value and volume of sales per designer and ranks the Top 100 for the year 2011. From the Top 100, a selection of designers have been further analysed to gain insight into the mechanics of the market.
