Fusion: Contemporary Art and Design is the inaugural sale representing a unique collaboration between Sotheby's Contemporary Art and 20th Century Design departments. This sale recognizes the synergy of the applied, technical and visual arts that has been a driving force in visual culture since World War II. Through their form, style, texture and material, each of the approximately 100 works of fine art and 20 pieces of design on offer contributes to the ongoing discourse between the two disciplines, and the continued blurring of the distinction between them. Highlights of the sale include a light installation by Dan Flavin from 1973, a Donald Judd chair and desk set from the Collection of Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, a work by John Baldessari from 2005 and a remarkable chair by Front Design, one of today's most celebrated and sought-after design collectives. Other extraordinary works include a rare grouping of works by Richard Pettibone dating from 1970, an elegant stabile by Alexander Calder from 1946, an early "Rolling Volume" by Ron Arad and a bench by Nacho Carbonell, which is the first work by the artist to appear at auction.
