Winner for Best Gallery Presentation: Geoffrey Diner Gallery
From George Nakashima’s keen attention to the spirit of organic material to Gio Ponti’s angular contours and distinctly modern silhouettes,
Geoffrey Diner’s natural affinity for cross collecting has caught on at large art, antiques and design fairs, when galleries - and in turn collectors - do
away with stodgy requirements limiting genres and eras outside specific periods.
American highlights on the gallery’s stand will include an extraordinary unique gilt bronze chain-mail fire screen by Louis Comfort Tiffany, originally commissioned in 1903 for Cro’Nest, the Rochester home of architect and stage designer Claude Fayette Bragdon. Also featured will be George Nakashima’s Frosh Family Sanso Reception House Table, which Nakashima built for Judge Stanely Frosh in 1981. This iconic form features two large, bookmatched English walnut slabs atop a delicate support system. The original chairs boast single slab seats. The ‘Sanso’
form was later adapted for his famed Altars for Peace. International Italian designers are well represented by a rare game table by Franco Campo and Carlo Graffi, executed in 1951. A pair of ‘Altamira’ armchairs designed by Gio Ponti are recognized for their delicate wood and reclined silhouette.
