One of the most fascinating aspects of American modern design and one that came to attract collectors in recent years is the Studio Movement. Lasted from the 40s through the 80s, its participants celebrated the notion that design, art, and crafts were intersected and that boundaries were to be abandoned. It was an American phenomenon that came to shape a major chapter in the history of American modern design, with the term ‘Studio’ applied to objects, furniture, glass, ceramics, textiles that are defined by an approach and taste for handcraftsmanship. The gallery most associated with the dissemination of the American Studio Movement in the collectible design arena is certainly Moderne Gallery from Philadelphia, founded by Dr. Robert Aibel, wh operates it today with his son Josh. In the current show at Design Miami/Basel, where the Gallery participates for the first time, Studio furniture are presented along with sculptures by Italian-American sculptor Harry Bertoia, bringing the most poetic of American design to the European market in this most stunning booth. Bravo!
