RESULTS FROM THE 11 AVRIL 2017 l €2 M FOR THE ITALIAN DESIGN

12 APRIL 2017 – PIASA’s latest twice-yearly sale of Italian Design on Tuesday April 11 ran to nearly 250 lots, dating from the early 20th century down to the contemporary period. The prestigious collection of architect Roberto Baciocchi – combined with an ensemble of works carefully selected by PIASA, international leaders on the market for Italian Design – provoked fierce bidding from collectors in the room, on the phone or over the internet, yielding a premiuminclusive sale total of €2.1 million.

Gio Ponti’s creations remain in high demand. The sale’s top price of €104,000 went to his armchair (c.1949) with iconic curves (lot 119), while his 1955 brass and elm commode, from the Roberto Baciocchi Collection, raced to €55,900 (lot 28, est. €30,000-40,000).

Baciocchi’s own designs exuded special appeal. His metal and lacquered wood cupboard fetched €22,100 (lot 22, est. €15,000-20,000), while a pair of velvet-upholstered sofas from his Cake series took €10,400 (lot 43). His private collection also included such historic pieces as a majestic Rhinoceros screen by François-Xavier Lalanne & Kazuhide Takahama, sold for €52,000 (lot 37), and a pair of 1955 metal Santiago chairs by Mathieu Matégot that made €31,200 (lot 44).

A pair of Ico Parisi coffee-tables in brass and lacquered wood, designed around 1960, pulverized estimate at €71,500 (lot 155, est. 10,000-15,000). Italian lighting also featured strongly, with Gino Sarfatti’s colourful 2072 Jo-Jo hanging-lamp surging to a double-estimate €78,000 (lot 172, est. €30,000-50,000).
