'Inside Out' Webbs Modern Design Auction

Some early highlights from the upcoming auction 'Inside Out'. This is the first modern design auction for 2014 and the third year of collaboration between Webb's and Mr. Bigglesworthy.

The curated suite of pieces for auction centre on the theme of modernism and its expression in the post war lifestyle. It was an optimistic era for architects, designers and manufacturers who were influenced by the ideals of the Bauhaus and eager to create a bold new world embracing new forms and materials. There is a common theme to the best work produced during this creative renaissance - a desire for honesty and integrity of design. That is, to create objects stripped of superfluous decoration, revealing their true essence of form and function. Check out the online catalogue here.
