Christie’s Design sale returns this November to our Paris saleroom, presenting 200 works spanning over six exciting themes. Art Déco creations by master sculptors Jan and Joël Martel coming from the family of the artists will be offered alongside an historic group of works by Jean-Michel Frank and Alberto Giacometti originally commissioned by the Born family in 1939. An exceptional set by Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand created/executed for the Pluet-Mezzara family for their Île-de-Bréhat house in Brittany, will also be presented with five U.A.M. masterpieces, including Madeleine Vionnet personal unique display bookcase by Boris Lacroix. Rounding this striking selection, one of the most important Agathon Léonard collection in the world assembled by German collector Ingelore Böstge will be offered alongside a curated ensemble of pieces by Alberto and Diego Giacometti coming from the Matisse, Susse, and the Alicia Moï collections among many more.
