Design in Dialogue: Classic Forms Across the Decades

Launch Slideshow

On 29 March Sotheby’s will present Design, offering an array of design objects spanning the 20th Century. The sale is comprised of chapters devoted to such artistic movements as Arts and Crafts, Tiffany Studios, Austrian Modernism, European Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Contemporary design. Highlights include an exquisite “Peony” Table Lamp by Tiffany Studios, a suite of Jean-Théodore Dupas panels from the S.S. Normandie, and iconic contemporary designs by Franz West, Tord Boontje and Studio Job. Also featured in this auction are dedicated sections of French Art Glass from an important Midwest collection and a comprehensive selection of Italian Glass. Here we have paired modern classics with their postwar counterparts to demonstrate the shared dialogue of innovation over the course of the 20th century. —Dan Tolson
