On June 4, premier Chicago auction house Wright is holding its June Design auction featuring more than 300 lots — from Bauhaus classics to extraordinary items from the California Craft movement — by some of the most influential and notable designers of the 20th century. See the lots here.
Designs by George Nakashima, Charlotte Perriand, Gio Ponti and Finn Juhl will be sold alongside architectural elements by Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan and much more, revealing a scene of modern American glamour.
Standing out among the offerings are two collections from celebrated and published interiors with works from the Morton D. May House in Ladue, Missouri, a total work of art by the celebrated architect Samuel Marx, and works from the Mr. and Mrs Edward Goodrich Residence in Los Angeles, California designed by Paul Frankl.
The auction also includes the Olympic Torch from Munich Olympics 1972.
This example was used in the opening ceremony of the 1972 Olympics in Munich. Signed with etched manufacturer’s mark to handle: [Spiele der XX Olympiade München 1972].
