NEW YORK, NY -- The Doyle+Design® auction on Wednesday, June 6, 2020 at 10am will showcase furniture, design and art by some of the most prominent designers, makers and artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. This sale category takes a look at design that has transformed the way we use living spaces while questioning where we draw the line between fine art and furniture and decorative objects.

Danish designer Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) is best known for his iconic PH lamp series. Introduced at the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris, the innovative lamps used baffles to provide indirect, glare-free lighting. A rare patinated metal and opaline glass six-light PH-Star chandelier is from the Estate of a Private Collector (est. $6,000-8,000).

The futuristic lines of Vladimir Kagan’s (1927-2016) Cosmos lounge chair and ottoman reflect the Space Age aesthetics of the early 1970s. The soft organic shapes seem to float weightlessly above the clear Lucite bases. The German-born designer immigrated to New York in 1938, where he studied architecture at Columbia and later apprenticed with his father, a master cabinet maker. He opened his own shop in 1949, and in 1952 was selected by MoMA for the exhibition Good Design (est. $1,500-2,500).

Living through decades of change in socio-political life and artistic movements in America, Seymour Fogel’s work continues to impress in its variation and range. Fogel worked on WPA murals in the 1930s as an apprentice to Diego Rivera, moving towards Abstract Expressionism in the late 1940s and 1950s, and finally exploring spirituality and transcendentalism after his return to New York from Texas. Untitled (Black Squares) is an interesting example of the artist’s ongoing experimentation in style and media (est. $2,000-4,000).
