held at pierre bergé & associés, brussels during brussels design september 09,
the auction sale featured design pieces which have been selected by li edelkoort.

the world is focused on design and the discipline is gaining importance everyday.
the auction house concept encourages and defends this young market of autonomous pieces,
giving opportunities to the one-of-a-kind or vintage industrial to become the new object
of desire for collectors. design takes its place next to art and is quickly becoming
the discipline of this century. consumers will access design in a new way, and acknowledge
not only the function, but also the investment value of objects and develop an emotional
connection with them. with this growing enthusiasm for form, we will begin conceiving
our homes and studios in a more artistic way with connoisseur connotations…
our homes becoming an atelier, gallery or even a private museum.
