Important Italian Design Collection of Max Palevsky to Be Sold by Los Angeles Modern Auctions

VAN NUYS, CA .- Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) is pleased to announce that on March 6, 2011 the important Italian design collection from the Estate of Max Palevsky will be sold at auction. The auction will feature the Ettore Sottsass designs commissioned by Max Palevsky for his Malibu home.

During the course of his life, Max Palevsky, most noted as a pioneer in the computer industry, amassed an astounding collection of Modernist art and Italian design to adorn his three extraordinary homes in California.

In 1984, Palevsky commissioned renowned Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass to redesign the interiors of his Malibu estate. Sottsass, who at the time was mostly unknown in the United States, was a driving force in European design, especially for founding the Memphis Movement in Italy.

Highlights from the Palevsky design collection will include a number of Ettore Sottsass custom designs such as a marble entry table, a custom headboard with built-in nightstands, and a unique marble and steel coffee table.

In addition to the Sottsass designs, four Murano glass windows, a selection of Venini glass, a rare Carlo Scarpa vase for Venini, and Alessandro Mendini designs will also be offered for sale.

Peter Loughrey, Director: “This is an exceptional opportunity for collectors, decorators and curators to acquire important works that, until now, were part of a noted taste-maker’s art collection. The Palevsky collection has it all: name recognition, provenance, and rarity. We will be selling this collection at no reserve - let the market decide!”
