Their avant-garde creations remain strikingly modern today, as shown in Louis Sognot's rosewood low table ($15,000-20,000), Jean E. Puiforcat's table clock ($40,000-60,000) and Boris Lacroix's glass and metal coupe ($3,500-4,500) and vase ($5,000-6,000). Another highlight of this section is an important desk by DIM's Joubert et Petit ($70,000-90,000), which is further complemented by an outstanding group of modernist works by Desny, including a rare metal floor lamp ($40,000-60,000). Also included are exquisite examples of the high standard of craftsmanship and elegance within the Art Deco period, with such pieces as Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann's two-tier console($80,000-90,000), a pair of "Hydravion" armchairs ($70,000-90,000) and Edgar Brandt's bronze standing lamp "La Tentation" ($80,000-100,000).
Also important works by Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand and their French peers, Italian Pop and Radical design, concluding with a section of razor-sharp contemporary design by Tom Dixon, Constantin and Laurene Boym, Zaha Hadid and Robert Wilson (see additional release). A group of important works on sale by Charlotte Perriand includes three which come from a private apartment in Geneva, designed by Pierre Jeanneret in 1957 and furnished by Perriand. The highlight of this group is a rare free-form low table in ebonised oak ($8 0,000-100,000). Also from this commission is an extremely rare bookcase ($40,000-60,000) constructed from planks and wooden bricks to create a flexible structure, and an unusually long (3.6 meters) oak dining table ($60,000-80,000). Works by Perriand's life-long collaborator Jean Prouvé, are also expected to generate significant interest.
