Catalogue Note

The present lot is unique due to its lacquered wood elements and its distinct colour palette, which pays homage to the Bauhaus and De Stijl movements.
The edition in white lacquer and rosewood or walnut was a tribute specifically to Theo Van Doesburg. Scale models exhibited at the 1923 De Stijl exhibition at the Effort Moderne gallery in Paris were certainly a source of inspiration for Claudio Salocchi. The present lot is one of his most iconic works.
