Curated by Tony Chambers, Editor-in-Chief of Wallpaper*

Sotheby’s London, 17 October 2017

This October, Sotheby’s will present ‘Living in a Material World’, an auction dedicated to exploring how leading designers have employed materials in new and cutting-edge ways. Covering the full spectrum of post-war and contemporary design, the exhibition will be curated by Tony Chambers, Editor-in-Chief of Wallpaper*. 

The selection will trace a history of how and why designers have chosen to work with specific materials, from simple and beautifully crafted modern pieces to highly-complex creations using the most technologically advanced tools. Highlights range from experimental and adventurous creations by Joris Laarman and Thomas Heatherwick to provocative and tongue-in-cheek designs by Rotterdam-based Studio Job. 

The auction will take place in New Bond Street on 17 October 2017, preceded by a public exhibition and series of gallery talks.
