Moss Auction at Phillips de Pury
- In February, Murray Moss closed his landmark SoHo design emporium to open a smaller headquarters. Now he’s pursuing a new agenda: marrying art and design in a 21st-century Wunderkammer.
Over the last decade Chicago's Wright auction house, one of the premier venues for modern design, has helped establish and define the collectable market. Since 2000 the auction house has sold over 20,000 lots of modern pieces—from a $2,300 George Nelson Ball Clock in 2000 to Pierre Koenig's Case Study House #21 that went for $3,185,600 in December of 2006. With an upcoming auction simply titled "Modern Design" on March 23rd we selected the items on which we would like place our bids.
- In honor of International Women's Day (today!), we're celebrating ten brilliant women in design as featured in Dwell. And, be sure to check out 25 more women in design here.
- “Form follows function” has been the go-to paradigm for evaluating good design since American architect Louis Sullivan articulated the idea more than a century ago.
