Phillips de Pury auctions design pieces

Work by Marc Newson, Jean Royère and Frits Henningsen will feature at the London Design Sale later this month.

The auction, by Phillips de Pury, will be held on 15 October and the pieces can be viewed from 10-14 October at its London headquarters on Howick Place, SW1.

Lots include a large Diode lamp by Newson and work from his Micarta series, which use a composite of resin-impregnated linen generally intended for utensil handles.

Earlier this year, Phillips de Pury established the world auction record for a living designer when it sold Newson’s Lockheed Lounge for £1 105 250.

Also on offer are mid-century Scandinavian designs including Frits Henningsen’s Wingback armchair, Poul Henningsen’s Piano lamp and works by Finn Juhl, Poul Kjaerholm and Tapio Wirkkala.

A 1950 Polar Bear sofa by French designer Royère will also be going under the hammer.

The pieces will be offered alongside architectural works and Harry Bertoia’s monumental Sonambient sculpture.
