Auction Results: SEATS II at Von Zezschwitz

June 30 '11

Von Zezschwitz Art and Design
Munich

Yesterday Von Zezschwitz held their auction SEATS II; a comprehensive and diverse selection of chairs, ranging from historic pieces circa 1800 to contemporary and modern design.

The sale was divided into 7 'chapters' which give more of an idea of the huge range on offer, these were; 'From classicism to historicism', 'Art Nouveau and Art D├ęco', 'Bauhaus and functionalism', 'Furniture for children and dolls', 'Restart and experiment: design from 1950 to 1980', 'Postmodern and Contemporary Design, 1980 to today' and 'Classics - reedited'.

'Postmodern and Contemporary Design, 1980 to today' in particular featured an extremely varied selection. Works with bold, luxurious or unusual forms appeared to be popular with buyers such as Eckhard Schichtel's 'Y-Chair' (1985), which fetched $2,538, over double the estimate of $990. Alessandro Mendini's sumptuous 'Proust' arcmchair (1978) sold for $7,050, (estimated at $7,800). The 'Son of Atlantis' armchair by Mark Brazier-Jones (1990), sold above it's estimate of $5,100, reaching $5,640. Whereas, the more minimal 'Ground seat' (1989) by Hermann Becker was estimated at $3,400 but failed to find a buyer at this sale.

The sale also featured some playful and postmodern pieces such as 'Consumer's Rest', (1983) an armchair formed from the shape of a supermarket trolley by Stiletto (Franc Schreiner); which sold for $2,679 (estimated at $2,800).

Other notable pieces include Ron Arads 'Bad tempered Chair' (2002) which fetched $8,742, just above the estimate of $8,500, and an interesting piece by Manfred Kielnhofer entitled 'Interlux' (2002). This piece is comprised of fluorescent tubes and plexiglass, to create a chair which also illuminates the room in which it sits, it was estimated at $2,500 but was bought in at this sale.
