Phillips Auction House/London is having a major Design auction on April 28, 2015. Examples including the “Lockheed lounge” designed by Marc Newson and “Miss Blanche” & a “Feather Stool” by Shiro Kuramata will go under hammer that day. These 3 lots are some of the most iconic pieces of design from the last 30-40 years and exceedingly rare to come up at auction.
