Art x Design host by Sotheby’s New York

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 - Sotheby’s New York is delighted to present Alchemy: Art x Design, an exhibition curated by Delphine and Reed Krakoff combining art, design and decorative objects from a range of periods and styles. The exhibition is part of the viewing for the 16 December sale of Important Design. Using property drawn primarily from Sotheby’s Important Design sale, Alchemy: Art x Design explores the unexpected ways in which works of art and design can inform each other and the spaces they inhabit. Designers Delphine and Reed Krakoff acting as curators have created unique environments in which diverse pieces are arranged in dynamic juxtapositions of material, color, texture and mood. Prewar and Postwar Design will be presented with contemporary and modern art, photographs, classic American and European furniture, antiquities and Renaissance art. The exhibition will be on view to the public in the 10th-floor galleries at Sotheby's York Avenue headquarters beginning December 13 and will remain open beyond the sale until the 18th December. Sotheby’s Important Design auction will feature a broad range of iconic American and European Prewar and Postwar Design. Top highlights include Masterworks of French Design from the Utterberg Collection, including a selection of works by JeanMichel Frank, Diego Giacometti, Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Pierre Chareau and Eugene Printz, a rare three-piece tea service by Marianne Brandt, an extraordinary modernist table lamp by Donald Deskey, and a highly whimsical chandelier by Claude Lalanne.
