CHICAGO, IL.- On November 16, Hindman Auctions will present its biannual Modern Design sale, which will offer outstanding studio craft furniture and other 20th and 21st century design. The auction will spotlight top American designers such as Wendell Castle, Dale Chihuly, Frank Gehry, Philip and Kelvin LaVerne, Sam Maloof, Peter Voulkos and Vladimir Kagan.

An exceptional set of five Zephyr chairs and a game table by Wendell Castle (lot 26; estimate: $50,000 - $60,000) is expected to be one of the top lots in the auction. Known as the leader of the studio furniture movement, Wendell Castle’s set demonstrates his meticulous craftmanship and innovation. Another item representing the studio craft movement is a Sam Maloof rocking chair made of maple and ebony (lot 18; estimate: $25,000-35,000). Other highlights by Maloof include an important live-edge bench (lot 19; estimate: $8,000-12,000) and two side tables (lot 20 and 23; estimate for each: $4,000-6,000).
