S otheby’s is delighted to present Design Week in New York on December 6-8, comprising five exceptional auction events and bringing together the best design the market has to offer. Kicking off the sale series is The Perelman Collection: Masterworks of Design, a landmark auction featuring the world-class Design collection from the famed American businessman and renowned collector Ronald O. Perelman. This wide-ranging and comprehensive assemblage represents one of the most significant collections of French Design to ever appear at auction and features superlative examples of French Art Deco and modernist Design from the early 1920s through the 1940s. The sale is followed by The Doros Collection: The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Amassed over decades of devoted connoisseurship, the couple passionately pursued the acquisition of objects that capture the unrivaled beauty and impeccable craftsmanship of Tiffany’s artistic expression in the glass medium. Design Week continues with Sculpture by Design, a new and exciting sale concept that recontextualizes the work of some of the most important masters of 20th Century Design—Armand-Albert Rateau, Diego & Alberto Giacometti and Claude & François-Xavier Lalanne—, whose work transcends the traditional boundaries between sculpture and design. Design Week further includes our bi-annual Important Design sale, a curated survey of design from outstanding examples of American Arts & Crafts to defining icons of postwar modernism and contemporary design. The week concludes with Poetry and Passion: The Distinctive Jewelry and Objects of Line Vautrin, an online auction dedicated to the work of the French designer and comprising an exquisite selection of jewelry and small objects.
Design Week preview exhibitions will be on view at Sotheby’s New York galleries beginning December 2.
