PARIS.- This season again, the Design sale has attracted international collectors achieving a total of €9,089,000/£7,780,678/$10,077,273 with sell-through rates of 91% by value and 85% by lot. This result is the third highest total for a various-owner Design sale at Christie's in Paris.

Flavien Gaillard, Head of Sale, commented: “The strong results totalised today demonstrate that global collectors are continuously eager to acquire fresh to the market works of art. These great sell-through rates state once again that international collectors have a strong appetite for well-priced high quality works of art with important provenance. We are especially delighted about the results achieved for the section dedicated to the works by Jean-Michel Frank and Alberto Giacometti for the prestigious Born family which realised exceptional results such as for the Lampe Bilboquet sold €298,000. We are also very pleased with the strong results achieved for the works designed by Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret in 1950 for the Pluet family’s house with a combined total of €402,125.”

Collectors have also been attracted by the iconic artworks of Agathon Léonard whose 11 lots of “Dancers” achieved a combined total of €416,250. The top lot of this section was Vampire, a bronze sculpture executed in 1904 which sold for €185,000 against a presale estimate of €70,000-100,000.

Further highlights of the sale included a beautiful section of works by the Martel brothers which raised a lot of interest. The section realised a stunning total of €751,375. The top lot of this section was a Maquette de “l’Arbre Cubiste” which sold for €168,750, more than doubling its high estimate. We can also mention the strong price realised for Pigeon à queue plate created in 1925, which sold almost ten times its presale estimate at €47,500 against a pre-sale estimate of €5,000-7,000.

Great results have also been achieved for two works realised by Alberto Giacometti and coming from the prestigious collection of Jacquelyn Miller Matisse which more than tripled their presale estimates with the Lampadaire ‘Osselet’ which sold for €286,000 (estimate: €70,000-100,000) and a Paire de lampes de table “à étoile” which sold for €310,000 (estimate: €80,000-120,000).

The collectors payed a beautiful tribute to Claude Lalanne whose Trône de Pauline sold for €370,000 against a presale estimate of €200,000-300,000.
