Each of the present nightstands comprises three dummy drawers on one side and a single drawer above a recess on the other. A nonce word, ‘Tournicol’ derives from the French verb tourner (to revolve). It also suggests tournesol (sunflower) which tracks the sun as it rises and sets, as might a revolving bedside table under a waking hand.

their Contemporaries, London, 2000, p. 70). This is one of those prized possessions brought with her from Vienna. Since graduating from the Kunstgewerbeschule in 1926 and prior to her arrival in the UK, Rie had enjoyed an increasingly international recognition for her unashamedly modern ceramics. These austere pieces were influenced by the materiality of the Modernist architecture and design that was emerging in central Europe at that time and rejected the decorative style of her tutor Michael Powolny. She received the Gold Medal at the Brussels exhibition in 1935 and another Gold Medal at the Milan Triennale in 1936. In 1937, Josef Hoffman had built a glass-walled corridor at the Austrian Pavilion at the Paris International Exhibition to display 70 of Lucie’s pots.

Signac painting that was projected onto the chair. The wood and upholstery of the chair functioned as both canvas and frame for the pointillist painting. Only very early chairs adhere to the pattern and palette determined by the detail of the original Signac painting. Over time different painters produced chairs and their decorations deviated significantly from that original template, with the appearance of the chairs increasingly determined by

Alessandro Mendini believes the present lot to be among the earliest examples of ‘Poltrona di Proust’ painted in the late 1970s by Prospero Rasulo and Pier Antonio Volpini or possibly by Franco Migliaccio, who succeeded them. The present chair is therefore one of the very first of these “aesthetic bombs” to explode the modernist orthodoxy of functionalism.

the cancellation of the sale or any delay in making full payment for the lot. 2 PROPERTY WITH A † SYMBOL These lots will be sold under the normal UK VAT rules, and VAT will be charged at 20% on both the hammer price and buyer’s premium. Where the buyer is a relevant business person in the EU (non-UK) or is a relevant business person in a non-EU country then no VAT will be charged on the buyer’s premium. This is subject to Phillips de Pury & Company being provided with evidence of the buyer’s VAT registration number in the relevant Member State (non-UK) or the buyer’s business status in a non-EU country such as the buyer’s Tax Registration Certificate. Should this evidence not be provided then VAT will be charged on the buyer’s premium. 3 PROPERTY WITH A § SYMBOL Lots sold to buyers whose registered address is in the EU will be assumed to be remaining in the EU. The property will be invoiced as if it had no VAT symbol. However, if an EU buyer advises us that the property is to be exported from the EU, Phillips de Pury & Company will re-invoice the property under the normal VAT rules. Lots sold to buyers whose address is outside the EU will be assumed to be exported from the EU. The property will be invoiced under the normal VAT rules. Although the hammer price will be subject to VAT, the VAT will be cancelled or refunded upon export. The buyer’s premium will always bear VAT unless the buyer is a relevant business person in the EU (non-UK) or is a relevant business person in a non-EU country, subject to Phillips de Pury & Company receiving evidence of the buyer’s VAT registration number in the relevant Member State (non-UK) or the buyer’s business status in a non-EU country such as the buyer’s Tax Registration Certificate. Should this evidence not be provided VAT will be charged on the buyer’s premium. 4 PROPERTY SOLD WITH A ‡ OR Ω SYMBOL These lots have been imported from outside the EU to be sold at auction under temporary admission. Property subject to temporary admission will be offered under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme and will be subject to import VAT of either 5% or 20%, marked by ‡ and Ω respectively, on the hammer price and an amount in lieu of VAT at 20% on the buyer’s premium. Anyone who wishes to buy outside the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme should notify the Client Accounting Department before the sale. Where lots are sold outside the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme and the buyer is a relevant business person in the EU (non-UK) or is a relevant business person in a non-EU country then no VAT will be charged on the buyer’s premium. This is subject to Phillips de Pury & Company receiving evidence of the buyer’s VAT registration number in the relevant Member State (non-UK) or the buyer’s business status in a non-EU country such as the buyer’s Tax Registration Certificate. Should this evidence not be provided VAT will be charged on the buyer’s premium. 5 EXPORTS FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION The following types of VAT may be cancelled or refunded by Phillips de Pury & Company on exports made within three months of the sale date if strict conditions are met: • The amount in lieu of VAT charged on the buyer’s premium for property sold under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme (ie., without a VAT symbol). • The VAT on the hammer price for property sold under the normal VAT rules (ie., with a † or a § symbol). The following type of VAT may be cancelled or refunded by Phillips de Pury & Company on exports made within 30 days of payment date if strict conditions are met:

Customs which shows the property has been exported from the EU via the UK within 30 days of payment date. It is essential for shippers acting on behalf of buyers to collect copies of original import papers from our Shipping Department. HM Revenue & Customs insist that the correct customs procedures are followed and Phillips de Pury & Company will not be able to issue any refunds where the export documents do not exactly comply with governmental regulations. Property subject to temporary admission must be transferred to another customs procedure immediately if any restoration or repair work is to be carried out. Buyers carrying their own property must obtain hand-carry papers from the Shipping Department, for which a charge of £20 will be made. The VAT refund will be processed once the appropriate paperwork has been returned to Phillips de Pury & Company. Phillips de Pury & Company is not able to cancel or refund any VAT charged on sales made to UK or EU private residents unless the lot is subject to temporary admission and the property is exported from the EU within 30 days of payment date. Any refund of VAT is subject to a minimum of £50 per shipment and a processing charge of £20. Buyers intending to export, repair, restore or alter lots under temporary admission should notify the Shipping Department before collection. Failure to do so may result in the import VAT becoming payable immediately and Phillips de Pury & Company being unable to refund the VAT charged on deposit. 6 VAT REFUNDS FROM HM REVENUE & CUSTOMS Where VAT charged cannot be cancelled or refunded by Phillips de Pury & Company, it may be possible to seek repayment from HM Revenue & Customs (‘HMRC’). Repayments in this manner are limited to businesses located outside the UK and may be considered for example for Import VAT charged on the hammer price for lots sold under temporary admission. All claims made by customers located in another member state to the UK will need to be made under a new mechanism from 1 January 2010. The process prior to 1 January 2010 is no longer in operation. If you are located in an EU member state other than the UK you will now need to apply for a refund of UK VAT directly to your local tax authority. This is done via submission of an electronically based claim form which should be accessed through the website of your local tax authority. As a result, your form may include VAT incurred in a number of member states. Furthermore, from 1 January 2010 you should only submit one form per year, rather than submitting forms throughout the year. Please note that the time limits by which you must make a claim have been extended. When making a claim for VAT incurred in another EU member state any claim will still be made on a calendar year basis but must now be made no later than 30 September following that calendar year. This effectively extends the time by which claims should be made by three months (eg. for VAT incurred in the year 1 January to 31 December 2010 you should make a claim to your local tax authority no later than 30 September 2011). Once you have submitted the electronic form to your local tax authority it is their responsibility to ensure that payment is obtained from the relevant member states. This should be completed within four months. If this time limit is not adhered to you may receive interest on the unpaid amounts. If you are located outside the EU you should apply for a refund of UK VAT directly to HMRC (the rules for those located outside of the EU have not changed). Claim forms are only available from the HMRC website. Go to http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/index.htm, and, under Quick Links, select Forms. The relevant form to search for is VAT65A. Completed forms should be returned to:
