Furniture and other items from Four Seasons Restaurant to be auctioned

July 26, 2016

Last month brought the unfortunate news that Four Seasons owners Julian Niccolini and Alex von Bidder failed to reach an agreement with Seagram Building owner Aby Rosen for the acquisition of the restaurant’s original and custom-made furniture, tableware and cookware, which includes works by celebrated names of Modern design such as Mies van der Rohe, Hans Wegner, Philip Johnson, Garth and Ada Louise Huxtable, and the design firm Knoll. Consequently, over 500 pieces will be up for auction on July 26. A catalogue will be produced chronicling the history of the interior in essays and photographs and a public preview will take place on site July 20–26.

Auction: July 26 at the Four Seasons
Public Preview: July 20–26, 10:00am – 6:00pm
