Modernity exhibits at Masterpiece London 2018

For our third participation to the Masterpiece fair, we will present a variety of furniture pieces by the celebrated Scandinavian designers Alvar Aalto, Josef Frank, Ib Kofod-Larsen, Tapio Wirkkala, Frits Henningsen and Ole Wanscher, among others.

We are especially proud to present an exceptional desk by one of Finland’s most important architects in the early 1900’s, Jarl Eklund. A beautifully executed piece in ebonized wood with exquisite details and secret drawers, made to order for a Swedish-Finnish family in 1924 by Boman.

The center of our booth will honor one of Sweden’s most famous designers, Josef Frank. A beautiful example of his Flora cabinet, together with a dining table with a remarkable root veneer top, and a rare set of matching chairs.

Some of Alvar Aalto’s most acclaimed designs will occupy the right side of our booth. Most are early pieces such as a rare shelf designed in 1933, a tea trolley from 1936, a Karelian birch armchair from 1931, and a Paimio chair, all in stunning condition.

Modernity has over the years come to specialize on rare and remarkable lamps. Two Finnish designers will be honored on our stand this year: Paavo Tynell and Alvar Aalto.

We sincerely hope you will be able to join us at the fair and look forward to seeing you there.

We are located on stand B17.
