Modern Design Specialist, Anna Grassham, selects a few of her favourite pieces from the upcoming Modern Design auction on 14 April at 6.30pm.
Anna’s taste does not focus on trends of the time, but rather she is drawn to striking aesthetics, strong lines and bold colours.
PIERRE PAULAN CARE OF ‘GROOVY CHAIR F598’ FOR ARTIFORT
“The groovy chair is like a wave of coloured ribbon in your living room. Designed in the 1970s, they came in an array of fabulous colours and are surprisingly very comfortable.”
GIANCARLO PERETTI ‘DILEMMA’ COAT RACK FOR CASTILIA
“The Italian coat rack is a fantastic design which incorporates an internal ladder system. It’s both stylish and practical, making it the perfect item for smaller living spaces.”
VICO MAGISTRETTI MARALUNGA ARMCHAIR & OTTOMAN FOR CASSINA
“Not only is it one of the most comfortable chairs and sofas on earth, the Maralunga design by Vico Magistretti (1974) is still as desirable today as ever.”
BILUME HALOGEN FLOOR LAMP
“Simple in design with bright colours, the Bilumen floor lamp is very sculptural and appeals to me on a functional and aesthetic level.”
RAPHAEL MAZZUCCO, UNTITLED, MIXED MEDIA
“Famous or not, I am drawn to art by colour, shapes and the mood it conveys to me. I love this work’s layering of colour and its deep mood”
