It's not everyday that the 'unreserved' gods shine down upon the auction block.
This past weekend, on February 23rd-25th, Bidsquare users jumped at the opportunity to acquire affordable goods during Rago's Unreserved Session 1, Session 2 and Session 3 sales. The sprinkle of activity coming in from the platform quickly developed into a gleeful downpour, drenching lovers of modern design in their favorite makers from Gio Pointi to Harvery Prober and Verner Panton!
Here are some of our favorite finds that were scooped up on Bidsquare:
We had our eyes on both of the George Nelson; Howard Miller "Spike" clocks featured in Rago's catalog, and this one was handed to the Bidsquare platform right in the nick of time!
This contemporary rocking chair stylishly nods (back and fourth) toward the designs of American furniture maker, Sam Maloof, whose 20th-century designs can be seen in museum collections all across the country.
We're jealous of this one! Harvey Probber, a popular designer in his heyday from the 1940s into the 1970s, has that "easy to add" quality that makes blending vintage styles with contemporary spaces a cinch.
Edward Wormley, a designer aligned with the most noteable designers of his time such as Harry Bertoia, Charles Eames, George Nelson and Eero Sarrinen sought to invent without doing away with all aspects of tradition. He said of his work, "Modernism means freedom—freedom to mix, to choose, to change, to embrace the new but to hold fast to what is good.” A sentiment that ought to make for a very comfortable lounge chair!
Seen as one of the most significant entities in the landscape of Italian lighting design, Stilnovo presents their mission and aesthetics as a multifaceted brand having worked with prestigious names such as Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Joe Colombo, Roberto Beretta and Ettore Sottsass. This attributed design from the 1950s is everything one should look for in a classic Stilnovo fixture.
