|Koller is the only auction house in Switzerland that dedicates an entire auction to Design, and the numerous collectors who attend the twice-annual auctions are proof of its growing popularity. Under the direction of Cyril Himmer, Koller’s design auctions have rapidly grown in prestige and quality, presenting works by such masters of design as Marcel Breuer, Alvaar Alto, Verner Panton and Ron Arad.
More than a fad, Design is now a part of the history of art of the 20th century, and appeals to a trans-generational public: from those who collected the works of mid-century designers as they were edited and who continue to do so, to post baby-boomers who are discovering design classics as well as 21st-century creations for the first time.
