Yesterday we had here selection of the best pieces selling today at Phillips de Pury & Company Design Masters auction held in New York. But tomorrow starts another great auction, also at Phillips de Pury & Company, New York.

We read the catalogue and made some pictures illustrating qualities of the selling pieces as well as precise photos and graphic of the catalogue. We have created these simple collages to introduce you to the world of the modernist design from Italy and France, especially.

So do not miss pieces by BBPR, Ico Parisi, Fontana Arte, Paolo Porthogesi, Gio Ponti, Gino Sarfatti, Angelo Lelli or Jean Royere, Serge Mouile and many many others. Enjoy!
