American Modern + Danish Capsule Collection

Opens Saturday 9th February.

Our up and coming Capsule Collection is a sign of things to come. A taste of what you can expect to find at our new gallery this year, 15 Williamson Ave, Ponsonby. America in the 1950s and 60s was the Jet Age. A time of architectural, artistic and design reform. Out was the old, heavy set, traditional style - Enter clean lines, new technology, bold colours and a healthy dose of good old American optimism. Home-grown talent and expat international superstars united, all vying to improve the world through the power of good design. The ground breaking mid-century design ethic captivated the imaginations of the post war generation and continues to inspire today. The Capsule Collection is only the beginning of a very good thing. This year at Mr. Bigglesworthy we're going all out to bring you the finest international and local design available. We're not ones to drop names but if we were, we would definitely be dropping these ones... Eames / Nelson / Broyhill / Pearsall / Colombo / Knoll / Jalk / Laurel / Baughman / Risom / Bertoia / Jere / Hvidt / Lovig / Dux / Plycraft / Cadovius / Buck / Wegner / Moller / Kofod Larsen
