Opening the fall auction season is Wright’s Living Contemporary sale, a thoughtfully edited auction comprised of functional and non-functional 20th and 21st century design paired with post-war and contemporary art. This sale features an outstanding selection of works by American, Argentine, Italian, Danish, French and Japanese designers.
Unparalleled craftsmanship is the hallmark of American pieces featured, such as JB Blunk’s organic-form coffee table carved from solid buckeye burl, an outstanding wall-mounted cabinet of welded and patinated steel by Paul Evans, a monumental hand-carved cabinet by Phillip Lloyd Powell, and a Conoid dining table crafted of American black walnut by George Nakashima.
Extending the legacy of modern craftsmanship into the new millennium are contemporary works such as the Modern Primitive Chair by the New York based creators aranda\lasch, exhibited at the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale, and three designs by the architect Steven Holl, including a stellar prototype cabinet of walnut, rubber and anodized aluminium.
Gallery preview opens September 20th and runs through the 26th, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Saturday, and Sunday by appointment.
