PARIS.- PIASA explores, through the Iconic Design for Specific Architecture sale, the close links between design and architecture. An itinerary consisting of nearly 150 pieces by architects and designers illustrates the fruitful dialogue fostered by design and architecture for decades. The selection will highlight the icons of design created specifically for architectures.

Social or political inspirations and studies are at the heart of the architect or designer’s creative process, and implicit relations between architecture and design are linked to the evolution of lifestyles. Thus, designers redefine our point of view on space, materials, or even light.

The selection will stage works by Pierre Jeanneret for Chandigarh, Jean Prouvé for Brazzaville, or Pierre Paulin for the Elysée Palace. A special section will be dedicated to Italy, with furniture by Gio Ponti for the Hotel Parce dei Principe, Ettore Sottsass works for the Esprit showroom in Dusseldorf, or Franco Albini for the Fondazione Milano. Lastly, Scandinavian design will also be showcased, with Alvar Aalto’s famous creations for the Paimio Sanatorium in Finland, or the equally renowned Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen, made for the SAS Royal Hotel of Copenhagen.
