My Highlights from Collective 2

My Selection:

Mattia Bonetti, Ontario Sofa, 2013, at 21st twenty first

Mattia Bonetti is one of the most talented and prolific decorative artists of our time. This sofa is fun and fresh, yet incredibly versatile.

George Rickey, “Two Lines Up” kinetic earrings, circa 1960s, at Didier Ltd. 

I love artist jewelry and I love George Rickey’s kinetic sculptures. Ah... If only my ears were pierced... 

Harry Bertoia, Willow Sculpture, 1970-1979, at Lost City Arts

Harry Bertoia’s work has experienced a strong revival in the last 15 years, leading to its current scarcity and soaring auction prices. His Willow is my favorite large-scale form.

Kaare Klint, Sofa, 1928, at Modernity 

I have recently rediscovered Danish design. I love its purity and its strong, masculine lines. This Kaare Klint leather sofa is just gorgeous with its most beautiful and rich patina.

Ico and Luisa Parisi, Rare collection of interior renderings, 1953, at Nicholas Kilner 

I have been collecting interior illustrations for over 15 years. I love how they help connect iconic pieces to the time of their inception, by featuring them in a period room designed by their creator. They are quite hard to find, and these are just beautiful. 

Donald Judd, Corner Bench #53, 1990, at Nicholas Kilner

The purest of forms, and the most vibrant of colors makes this Judd piece completely timeless. It would look stunning in a more classic interior, as an unexpected jolt of flavor.

Jean Girel, Paysage Vase, 2008, at Maison Gerard 

I love the organic shapes, intricate colors, and rich glazes of Jean Girel’s ceramics. Especially this piece, which marries clean lines with the most beautiful shades of greys and blues, just like the horizon where the ocean meets a stormy sky. So chic.
