PARIS.- On 27 April 2107 AD magazine and PIASA will team up for a fourth time to stage an auction of furniture conceived by artists, decorators and designers.

The goal of this fourth sale of Artists-Decorators is to assemble, in the same auction and presentational decor, a broad range of brilliantly original furniture – from the ultra-baroque pieces of Elizabeth Garouste to the conceptual items of Raphael Navot. Mixing styles, periods and designers helps redefine ambiance and create innovative interiors. PIASA and AD magazine share the desire to promote aesthetic evolution via tightly themed sales. That on April 27 showcases both young designers like Victoria Wilmotte and leading names in vintage furniture like Paul Evans.

Early Ron Arad Designs from the Raf Simons Collection
Raf Simons, who began as a furniture designer before becoming a couturier presiding over leading fashion-houses, has never lost his love of objects and embodies the dialogue between Design, Art and Fashion. His soul is that of a collector – with an amazing ability to spot exceptional pieces. In 2013 he asked PIASA to sell part of his collection of French ceramics then, in 2014, his collection of ceramics by Axel Salto. For the forthcoming Artists-Decorators sale, he has consigned a number of important early works by Ron Arad.

The 1980s were a time of experiment, recuperation and reappropriation, epitomized by Arad's iconic Rover Chair – a car seat mounted on a tubular structure – and lamps with a telescope system derived from tanks.

Arad's work from the 1990s reveals his mastery of steel, and talent for creating such sculptural seats as Sit or Rolling Volume using metal that was sometimes polished, sometimes patinated – with the welding and screws left visible to exalt the craftsmanship involved.
