Saturday @ Phillips. On April 26th at 10am and 2pm, new and old collectors will have the chance to bid on a wild variety of art. The auction catalog has just come out and in it is our very own Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, playing Tastemaker. Max was asked to pick 10 of his favorite pieces in the upcoming auction and explain why. And he did, alongside Simon Hammerstein, of The Box fame, and Irina Lazareanu, model, musician and budding cultural icon.
Max loves Alvar Aalto's cantilevered side chair up for auction next Saturday because he says, "I like designs that are eternally useful. All of Aalto's designs resisted embellishment and set a standard for form and function. IKEA probably wouldn't exist if it weren't for Aalto. I was tempted by the other Aalto designs, but chose this chair because I felt that its curving form would allow the spirit to sail when viewed from another room."
Saturday's auction that would work well in one's home....
