Paul McCobb – Wright 20 Auction
It's a combination of the best with the best : mid-century designer Paul McCobb features in a dedicated event at modernist maestro auction house Wright 20 on June 29.
Paul McCobb's work was so popular during the mid-century era that his work was widely copied. Today, authentic pieces from this designer are extremely desirable among mid-century collectors.
His work features clean lines and a lightness of form. These are functional designs, built with the highest quality cabinetry and materials. The auction demonstrates the skill that he applied to an extensive range of storage, seating and lighting. We have selected our favourite pieces from the event here.
Wright 20, based in Chicago, has been hugely responsible for leading a new wave of interest in mid-century and modernist design classics.
We have sold several pieces from this designer and he is a favourite of ours from the US. At the moment we have a desk available, which was produced as part of the 'Planner Group' series which he is most recognised for. View this Desk
