Musings about vintage design furniture

Too meta

Catching up after a long break from blogging. T Magazine is featuring its best stories in design for 2013, bringing us back to Chandigarh and the furniture of Jeanneret with a review of Amie Siegel’s Provenance, which follows Jeanneret’s furniture from the dumps of Chandigarh to the auction rooms of the West. Siegel’s video sold for a very meta $52,500 at Christie’s October Post-War and Contemporary sale, probably to another magnate who will enjoy it in his yacht.
