I am thrilled to announce that registration to my program Collecting Design: History, Collections, Highlights at the New York School of Interior Design is open now. In this fall edition I will be hosting some great friends and colleagues, experts who will share their passion and knowledge on collecting design. Dakin Hart, curator of the Isamu Noguchi museum will highlight rarity and collecting of Noguchi's design ; Nicholas Kilner, will share his expertise on Italian postwar design, the most growing area in the collectible design market and particularly on Osvaldo Borsani, whose work I find spectacular; Brent Lewis will illuminate the current state of the market for Eaems furniture and will summarize the sale of the JF Chen Collection at Wright Chicago; Justine Despretz will share her discovery of the role of the auction houses in promoting Italian design; Alberto Aquilino, director of 1950 who is always great to have as a speaker will speak about Charlotte Perriand in the light of the film on collecting Perriand, which I have recently completed; with Christina Japp, I will explore whether it is still possible to collect work by French Art Deco master Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann; Zesty Meyers will be speaking on Jeff Zimmerman, a glass artist who has been represented by R & Company, co-founded by Meyers for several years. The program concludes with a visit to a design exhibition at one of the major auction houses in December. Those who register for the program receive free access to the annual report of the design market conducted by Design Think Tank; and since the program is sponsored by Cultured Magazine,, each one of the participants receives a free annual subscription to the Magazine. The desk above by mid-century Italian designer Guglielmo Ulrich was presented by Nick Kilner and has found a home on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
