Design at Phillips
Phillips auction house in Southampton will display highlights from its upcoming design sale beginning tomorrow and running through Wednesday. The sale will feature a monumental ceramic sculpture by Peter Voulkos, art nouveau ceramics from the collection of Jason Jacques, and a selection of Vladimir Kagan pieces from the designer's estate, according to a release. Other lots on view will be rare works by Alberto Giacometti, designs by Ingrid Donat, and work by Marc Newson and Gio Ponti.
Cordelia Lembo, Phillips's head of design in New York, singled out other examples by Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, George Ohr, and Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat. Good design has become even more prized this year as houses continue to absorb multiple functions over the course of the day, from office to school, gym, dining room, relaxation zone, and overall haven.
The sale will take place in the auction rooms in Manhattan with phone banks there and in London with further details and a digital catalog available on the auction house's website.
