We’d raise our paddle for these design classics from Quittenbaum

More than 300 classic items of international furniture design will go under the hammer on June 22, at Quittenbaum’s ‘International Design’ sale. We’d raise our paddle for the following lots…

Big names at reasonable prices – that’s how you could summarise the Munich-based auction house Quittenbaum in the collecting world. Take its forthcoming ‘International Design’ sale, in which there are many interesting pieces that don’t require a fortune to obtain. There are two early Weissenhof armchairs, estimated at 3,000 euros each, as well as a matching desk by Marcel Breuer, estimated to fetch 8,500 euros. An extremely rare and elegant armchair from 1931 by Erich Dieckmann is up for grabs for a moderate 4,500-6,000 euros, while our editors would all happily settle into the PLR easychairs designed by Ross Franklin Littell – introduced in 1968, they’re estimated at 3,000-4,000 euros. You can find the entire catalogue for the Quittenbaum ‘International Design’ sale listed in the Classic Driver Market.
