PIASA reaffirms leadership in scandinavian design: €3,5M results | FEBRUARY 10, 2015

PIASA REAFFIRMS LEADERSHIP IN SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN
Sale of Scandinavian v American v Brazilian Designbrings premium-inclusive €3.5m
PARIS, FEBRUARY 10– PIASA’s 5th sale of Scandinavian v American v Brazilian Design
at saw three hours of lively bidding in the room, over the phone and on the web, with
works sold by all the leading names of 20th Century Design.
Works by Axel Salto, grouped together in an important ensemble at the start of the sale,
proved phenomenally popular, with a massive 95% finding takers. Top bid of €101,000
rewarded his Forest Of Cones (lot 7), an astonishing and unique 1960s glazed stoneware
‘budding’ vase (est. €40,000-60,000). His Le Noyau de la Force (lot 8) flew to €94,800 (est.
€40,000-60,000).
A sheep’s wool armchair (lot 82) by the Danish modernist designer Flemming Lassen,
evocatively entitled Tired Man(c.1935), posted the sale’s top price of €103,480, closely
followed by Hans Wegner’s carved oak Crocodilecabinet (lot 81), edited by Michael
Laursen, at €101,000 – a world record for Wegner.
American Design also provoked great enthusiasm (95% of lots sold), led by a major piece
by George Nakashima: his emblematic Conoid table (lot 162) designed in 1965 (and edited
for various subsequent commissions) at €53,590. Another work of American Design,
a 1950s sideboard with characteristic geometric decor by the Hungarian-born Paul
Laszlo, made €25,520 (lot 176).
