Important 20th Century Design auction

What does US $3.7 million worth of industrial design look like? That's the lowest pre-sale estimate for the 101 pieces going on the block at Sotheby's "Important 20th Century Design" auction in June. (The highest estimate is $5.4 million.)

Up for grabs will be pieces by Frank Gehry, Shiro Kuramata, Jean Prouve, Gustav Stickley, Tom Sachs, and Olafur Eliasson, among others. And while objects like a Tiffany "Trumpet Creeper" lamp are expected to pull in as much as a half a mil, it's designer Joris Laarman's recent (2003) "Heatwave" radiator that's being called "one the most acclaimed designs of the decade" by James Zemaitis (Director of Sotheby's 20th Century Design Department).

Says Zemaitis, "When you juxtapose this masterwork with the Trumpet Creeper lamp by Tiffany Studios at the end of the sale, we see how industrial design is cyclical, and that nature is reestablishing itself as a decorative presence in the 21st Century."
