Andreas Murkudis opened the next round of the auction of his personal collection. This time it is all about unique design objects and furniture. If you live in a beautiful old apartment with pretty high walls, then the white lace lamps by Christian Haas, made of acrylic glass and multiple rings, are an absolute interior design eye-catcher. The German born industrial designer, who created this gem of a lamp, has already worked with famous manufacturers like Villeroy & Boch, Theresienthal and Nachtmann.

A sophisticated dash of color you can add on your dinner table with the beautiful antique Lobmeyr ceramics or serve your breakfast eggs in two handmade Wilhelm Wagenfeld eggcups. The design of the mouth-blown Muslin glass bowls and vases are characteristic collectibles designed by well-known designers like Josef Hoffmann (Wiener Werkstaette), Oswald Haerdtl and Margrit Linck. Latter, one of the most important Swiss ceramists and former exhibition partner of Joan Miró, is known for her sculptural yet simplistic everyday pottery.

If you are more the ironic type of decorator and tired of Ikea stuff, pose your friends a riddle not to be solved with the wooden Bauhaus style chair from the 1920’s. With its white vintage patina, the chair resembles the minimalist style chairs by Marcel Breuers (the ti 3 series designed for children, 1923) or the prototypes for Gerrit Rietvelds Red and Blue Chair.
Another highlight of the collection is the prototype chair by Marcel Wanders, referenced on the website of the MoMa New York and unassumingly comfortable it definitely deserves a special place in his new owner’s home.

Typically Murkudis, each of the 20 items is a playful harmony of pureness and style. The auction will be online until the 13th of August. So better be quick and bid! Paddles this way
