Sotheby’s is delighted to present Design Week in New York on June 7, comprising two exceptional auction events that bring together the best design the market has to offer. Kicking off the sale series is our bi-annual Important Design sale, a curated survey of design from outstanding examples of American Arts & Crafts to defining icons of mid-century, postwar modernism and contemporary design. Highlights include exceptional works by Les Lalanne, Alberto and Diego Giacometti, Eugène Printz, Jean Dunand. Paul Evans, Harry Bertoia, Ron Arad, Frank Lloyd Wright and Tiffany Studios. 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. This June, building upon the foundation of innovation and technique established in the inaugural sale, Volume II: Abstraction will draw engaging and provocative parallels between masterworks from the collection that showcase the firm's modern vision and fascination with abstraction.
Design Week preview exhibitions will be on view at Sotheby’s New York galleries beginning June 2.
