    Annmaris and PIASA Offer Curated Auction of Finnish Furniture Design

    At the end of World War II, Finland’s landscape was devastated. Retreating German armies left behind great swaths of scorched land, and various peace agreements forced the Finnish government to cede territory. The rural Finnish population fled their homes and flocked to the inner cities.  This rapid migration proved to be a turning point for Finnish furniture design. Brands soon realized that the new city dwellers lacked both the money and space for traditional furniture items. Sleek, lightweight, and low-cost designs flooded the stores. Today, Nordic minimalism has a global market. Finnish auction house Annmaris will partner with Paris-based auction house PIASA to showcase the best of Finnish furniture design. The houses will offer a live auction on September 15th, 2021 at 11:00 AM EDT. Learn more about Finland’s top interior designers before placing a bid. Alvar Aalto, pair of “Beehive” pendant lights, 1953. Image from Annmaris Auctions/PIASA. Alvar Aalto Even before World War II prompted a design revolution in Finland, Alvar Aalto found himself leading the rising tide of modernism. The architect and designer started exploring Nordic Classicism in the 1920s. He increasingly embraced modernism after it spread through Western and Southern Europe. Aalto favored a balance of functionality and aesthetics that eventually came to define Finnish furniture design. Birch wood often appeared in his pieces due to its low cost and prevalence in Finland. Aalto’s success at various international exhibitions encouraged other Finnish designers to follow in his footsteps.  The upcoming Annmaris and PIASA auction will particularly highlight Alvar Aalto’s work. Among the top lots is a pair of pendant lights from Aalto’s popular “Beehive” series (lot #57; estimate: EUR 18,000 -  €25,000 / USD 21,300 - $29,600). Originally designed for the University of Jyväskylä, this series uses stacked steel rings to diffuse warm light. Other available Aalto lots include a set of eight laminated birch chairs, assorted table lamps, and sets of Aalto’s iconic Model 60 stacking stools.
