    MARKET FOR IMPORTANT DESIGN GROWS

    Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

    The market for important works of design has gone from strength to strength in recent months.  The Design sale at Sotheby’s in London on November 15 follows on successful similar sales in New York and Paris in 2016.  Following the success of a relaunched dedicated design sale for London in 2015, this second edition will be underpinned by important works of Post-war Scandinavian, Italian, French, American and Contemporary Design, including rare examples by Arne Jacobsen, Gerrit Rietveld, Gio Ponti, Studio Job, Marc Newsom and Nacho Carbonell. The sale takes place just days ahead of the landmark opening of a major new home for London’s Design Museum.
