Catalogue Note

Martin Szekely was part of a small group of innovative contemporary French designers who began to establish themselves internationally in the mid 1980s through the VIA (Valorisation de l'Innovation dans l'Ameublement), a non-profit organization established to foster artists and the practice of contemporary design in France.  Through the VIA, Szekely worked in both Japan and Italy and has shown his designs worldwide.  The lots offered in this sale by Szekely represent a portion of the body of work, beginning with the "Pi" series in 1986, which he developed through Néotu Gallery in Paris.
