Masterpieces of Scandinavian Design Exceptional Ceramics by Axel Salto I SEPTEMBER 14, 2016 – 7PM

PIASA, market-leaders for Scandinavian Design, are pleased to announce details of their next twice-yearly specialist sale – to be held on Wednesday 14 September as curtain-raiser to the Autumn auction season Works selected for this important sale place the emphasis on outstanding examples of Scandinavian Design.

Nordic Designers, cabinet-makers and architects introduced a radical new aesthetic to 20th century furniture. Their limited, high-quality output spread the renown of Scandinavan Design across the world.

The Simples Lines Of Modernity

With its crisp outlines, Scandinavian furniture still looks amazingly modern. Among the leading proponents of this sober approach was Denmark’s Poul Kjærholm, reputed for his elegant and refined style. He was fascinated by construction materials – notably steel, which he considered a ‘natural material.’ The PIASA sale features one of his most iconic seating designs: the PK12 armchair, whose minimalist style would influence a host of 20th century designers. The PK12 is almost closer to a chair than an armchair – being easy to move about, without neglecting comfort. The ingeniously simple, three-part structure has front legs that become arm-rests and rear-legs joined to form the back. A set of six PK12 armchairs in chromed steel will be up for auction (est. €50,000-70,000).

Ejnar Larsen and Bender Madsen worked together during the golden age of Danish Modernism. Their magnificent, finely carved 1958 desk in Brazilian rosewood, adorned with an original copper top, is almost two metres wide by one metre deep. Its delicate craftsmanship epitomizes its authors’ aesthetic credo (est. €50,000-70,000).
