A grand Professor desk by Prouvé, one of only three examples from the Université de Lille in France, and an exquisitely crafted Nuage Bibliothèque by Perriand stand out among the offerings. With an emphasis on materiality and fine craftsmanship, Italian designs by Franco Campo and Carlo Graffi, Gio Ponti and Carlo Mollino as well as luxurious accessories from Louis Vuitton and Hermès round out this original sale.
