Wright continues to present the only auction dedicated to the optimism, industriousness and innovation of American Design at mid-century.

Not only does this curated sale feature the iconic designs of Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia and George Nelson, this season you will find an extraordinary assortment of fabric samples designed by Alexander Girard alongside works acquired from his famed Textile & Objects shop. This incomparable collection comes from Betty Gorecki, whose husband of 17 years was a salesman for Herman Miller throughout the 1960s. 

Textiles & Objects

I am a reasonable and sane functionalist tempered by irrational frivolity.

Finally, this sale also includes the graphic designs of the revolutionary Paul Rand, whose influence still resounds with contemporary visual language. Directly from his estate, this collection is a follow up to our 2018 auction, Paul Rand: The Art of Design, dedicated to his pioneering career and vision.
