PIASA sale focuses on the leading masters of Scandinavian Design
Finn Juhl (1912-1989), Chieftain, 1949. Teck et cuir - Edition : Niels Vodder - H 85 × L 102 × P 73 cm. Estimate: 140 000 / 180 000 €.

PARIS.- PIASA's first sale of the 2017 Autumn Season focuses on the leading masters of Scandinavian Design, represented by a stellar selection of iconic items and furniture in Paris on September 14.

In 1949 Finn Juhl (1912-89), the father of Danish Modern, designed one of his best-known models: his teak and leather Chieftain chair, produced in collaboration with cabinetmaker Niels Vodder (est. €140,000-180,000).

Another sale highlight is the perforated brass Snowflake chandelier by fellow-Dane Paavo Tynell (1890-1973), the big boss of Scandinavian lighting. This brilliant example of his creative genius reflects the key influence of Nature (est. €120,000-150,000).

Master ceramicist Axel Salto (1889-1961), regularly the subject of feverish bidding at PIASA sales, will be respresented by around twenty pieces – led by his signed, glazed stoneware Budding vase from 1956, in an edition by Royal Copenhagen (est. €60,000-90,000).

Mise en scène by Fabrizio Casiraghi
Fabrizio Casiraghi comes from a family rooted in Milan, the cradle of Italian industry and design. He showed an early interest in architecture and was accepted to the Politecnico, the famous faculty of engineering and architecture whose graduates include Aldo Rossi, Achille Castiglioni and Renzo Piano.

Having graduated, he moved to Paris and worked for Dominique Perrault.
He continued his career at Dimore Studio in Milan, taking the lead on sizable international projects.The experience allowed him to develop his own methodology for each new project.

He is first and foremost interested in the volume. He then imposes rigor and purity, the shimmer of materials, the softness of colors and the exoticism of unusual furniture, all framed by the subtle and controlled use of light.

In 2015, when he was not yet 30, he founded his agency Casiraghi, whose projects today alternate between residential, hotels, restaurants and boutiques. He considers himself a spiritual son of the Milanese tradition, quoting Gio Ponti, Piero Portaluppi and Gabriella Crespi, but he does not hesitate to emphasize his more diverse influences such as Madeleine Castaing, Maison Jansen or the Scandinavian designer Hans Agne Jakobsson.

And with his interests ranging from antiques to historic pieces, he defines a free modernity that is not opposed to the past. Fabrizio Casiraghi dares to mix and contrast styles without ever breaking the harmony of the interiors.

He invents a refined balance in which the overall vision and general atmosphere prevail.
