6† THE T69 DINING TABLE, ITALIAN, BY OSVALDO BORSANI AND EUGENIO GERLI, FOR TECNO, MILAN, c.1965, the rosewood circular top on a splayed cast aluminium base, bearing makers label, 130cm (d) x 74cm (h) Osvaldo Borsani had a background in Rationalism, the taking of classical forms of Ancient Greece and Rome and paring it back, omitting the ornamental and retaining the form. As the 20th century proceeded the Italian design became more original but the unadorned form and craftsmanship remained and with every passing decade design improved leading to its pinnacle in the 1960s and 70s. In 1953 Borsani founded Tecno with his brother, the great project for which he worked his whole life in order to develop standard production with reference to that of design. At the end of the Sixties, Osvaldo Borsani, together with Marco Fantoni and Valeria Borsani, created the Tecno Designs Centre, which creates new products and secures for the company the supervision of large interior architectural works, the experimentation in new technologies, and the strategies and the tools of business communication. At the same time Borsani opened up the design to collective uses and to the contribution of external designers.

8† THE NOMOS TABLE, BY SIR NORMAN FOSTER (B.1935), FOR TECNO ITALY, chromium plate and glass, stamped. 160cm (w) x 80cm (d) Norman Foster’s interest in engineering and design was cultivated during his childhood in Manchester, a city he considered “A workshop of the world”. In 1967 he founded Foster and Partners and his landmark designs include Stansted Airport, Wembley Stadium and 30 St Mary Axe known as “The Gherkin Building”. “The concept of Nomos, from the Greek word meaning ‘fair distribution’ is based on the relationship between the users and the space they occupy. At the heart of the design is a kit of precision-engineered components that can be combined to create bespoke working environments for individuals or groups. The starting point is the spine to which are added legs, feet, supports, work surfaces and superstructures, while a vertebra-like conduit carries cabling. With its characteristic splayed feet the design is evocative of the Lunar Landing Module, or a grasshopper with its thin body and slim legs- an assembly governed by the ergonomics of the human form, seated or standing”.

After gaining a high-school diploma from the institute of applied arts in Monza, he obtained his professional grounding in the R&D centre of AF&F, a company specialising in the production of metal furniture for public buildings and areas. He began his independent career in 1972 and started to make an effective contribution to fitted kitchen design in 1978: the quality of his work was recognised when he won the Casaviva d’Oro first prize in 1983. The simple shape of the objects he creates, his constant experimentation with new materials and applicable technologies, and the meticulous definition of every detail are fundamental to Pietro Arosio’s work. Some of his works have been exhibited at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, and at the Die Sammlung museum of modern art in Munich.

108 Louis le Brocquy HRHA 1916-2012 EDEN, 1951 (AKA Womans Heel) Tapestry, 46½" x 72¾", (118 x 185cm), with signed Artist’s Certificate Woven at The Golden Targe Tapestry Studio, Edinburgh (c.1952) under the supervision of master weaver Ronald Cruikshank, who had previously been at the Edinburgh Tapestry Company. Edition of 9 (The Golden Targe Tapestry Studio, Edinburgh / Tabard frères et souers, Aubusson – all-included) however it is thought by the artist’s son Pierre that this is a unique version in this reversed format. Dorothy Walker in her monograph on the artist (1981) states ‘Eden’ remains one of le Brocquy’s most interesting works; the vibrant colourful design is based on a series of subdivisions of the classical golden section, yet the design bleeds off the tapestry in a most unclassical manner. The womans heel, which the angel promised would crush the serpent, continues to writhe below. The leaves of the tree mingle with the tears of Adam and Eve while the fatal apple is discarded, bitten and segmented. Pierre le Brocquy has recently written “‘Eden’ is based on a series of subdivisions of the Golden Mean. The subject-matter is reflective rather than religious. Louis once told me that he had chosen the legend of Adam and Eve to conceive an allegorical tapestry depicting the awakening of human consciousness, the birth of the mind.” €20000 - 30000
