If you haven’t heard of stylist and art director Dimitri Levas, then you have definitely heard about his best friend and former employer as throughout the 80s, Levas was acting as the photo stylist of Robert Mapplethorpe. He has been known for his highbrow taste, and now, that Wright offers his collection of furniture, lighting, and objects for sale, it is a great opportunity for us to look into the choices of this tastemaker. It was during the 80s, when art glass flourished in the secondary marketplace, that Levas had first developed the love for Italian glass and has since succeeded in assembling one of the seminal collections of its kind. His collection, mostly of French and Italian design, demonstrates a particular preference for the Radical Design Movement that had swept Italy in the 60s and 70s. The sale, the second from this collection (the first of Murano glass was offered at Wright in 2014) will be taking place on June 8th.
