Quoted from Cool Hunting:
Unlike some auction houses, the Chicago-based Wright simply offers (quite modestly) some of the best design available on the secondary market. The forthcoming Modern Design auction, taking place on 7 October 2008, is no exception. In addition to showcasing the work of mid-century icons Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia, George Nakashima, Isamu Noguchi, Gio Ponti, George Nelson, Hans Wegner, Poul KjÃ¦rholm and many others, this auction features stunning inclusions from more recent decades.
