We are delighted to announce the launch of the first annual DeTnk Collectible Design Market Report, a holistic analysis of the emerging collectible design market. Since 2005, the collectible design market has grown by over 350%. This incredible increase in sales and interest of collectors prompted us to produce the Market Report.
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:
by Rabih Hage
‘Critical of a lack of criticism’
by Edwin Heathcote (architecture and design critic for The Financial Times)
‘Design Out of Reach’
by Judd Tully (art critic and editor-at-large for Art +Auction)
‘Trends in Collecting’
by Sophie Lovell (writer and contributor to Wallpaper* Magazine and author of Limited Edition)
‘Pressing the Binary Button’
by Nicole Swengley, (design writer and contributor to the Financial Times).
The report premiers 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 2010. From the Top 100, a selection of designers have been further analysed to
gain insight into the mechanics of the market.
The Report is available to purchase for £250
