between all this innovations: where are the classics?

tuesday evening, phillips de pury gallery, london:

rare table lamp by gino sarfatti, model no 594, c. 1962

large three-arm wall light by serge mouille, 1950s

conoid bench by george nakashima, 1985

exterior light by le corbusier, 1960

set of ten door handles with lock plates by walter gropius and adolf meyer, 1922

unique bed with pair of bedside tables by gio ponti, late 1950s

wall light by gio ponti, 1959

some of this designers aren’t alive anymore and there is nobody who updates a website of dead people. but I linked the designers with information on what they have done or with biographies. walter gropius is linked with an audio archive of the bbc from 1968. I think it’s worth listening to.
