Quittenbaum to auction Italian design icons
More than 250 lots that "illustrate the revolutionary ideas of Italian designers and architects” will be going under the hammer, including plenty of striking items of furniture, lighting and decorative objects. Among the prominent classics from Italian design history is the red Bocca Marilyn lip sofa by Studio 65, along with a huge range of items representing such well-known names as Piero Fornasetti, Ettore Sottsass, Gino Sarfatti, Osvaldo Borsani and Angelo Mangiarotti. The complete auction catalogue can be found in the Classic Driver Market. Incidentally, on 25 September 2014 Quittenbaum will be holding a more general Design auction at its Munich premises - all lots can be found here.
