Phillips is set to auction 214 impressive interior design lots on 29th April at 2pm in their Howick Place premises. The sale will offer sensational pieces which range from unique 1930’s lighting fixtures to an unusual coat rack room divider.
One lot to watch out for is Jean Royere’s important ‘Tour Eiffel’ extendable dining table produced circa 1963. It has an estimated sale price of £300,000 to £400,000.
If you enjoyed Martino Gamper’s recent exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery you can bid on one of his desks with his stylistic modular shelving systems (produced in 2008) for a reasonable estimate of £7,000 to £9,000.
Other key pieces we shall be following closely are; a pair of first rate Diego Giacometti side chairs circa 1978, Jean Prouve’s rare 1950’s sensational ‘Compas’ cafeteria table, and a pair of arm chairs by renowned Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret.
