Manuela Ammer (Ed.)
Each work in this beautifully designed publication featuring intriguing objects and furniture from a collector dedicated to rare, exquisite and unusual works is photographed to capture its every nuance. The selection of 66 objects from the 18th and 19th centuries includes objets d’art and French masterworks by Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand and Serge Mouille. Among these, two pieces—a Grand Professor desk by Prouvé, one of only three examples from the Université de Lille in France, and an exquisitely crafted Nuage Bibliothèque by Perriand— stand out. Designs by F ranco Campo and Carlo Graffi, Gio Ponti and Carlo Mollino, Mathieu Mategot, Mofem, Jacques Adnet, Frederic Debon, Gustave Gautier Tove and Edvard Kindt-Larsen, Jodef Hurka, Bruce Goff, Jean Royère, Jean Perzel, Georges Jouve, Isamu Noguchi, Alexandre Noll, Lino Sabattini and Paul Dupré-Lafon celebrate material and craftsmanship. Luxurious accessories from Louis Vuitton and Hermès round out this original auction.
