Good Design is for eternity.

Alberto Alessi, Designer
Design for collectors

Design has become an established and popular field for collectors.

The various currents and lines of development of modernism find their counterpart in the design of everyday objects in beautiful and at the same time useful things.
The spectrum ranges from Bauhaus and De Stijl, through the post-war decades of the twentieth century, with positions of Organic Design, Functionalism, Radical Design, Postmodernism, to contemporary author design or artist designs.
