Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid's Iceberg in ‘Design First’ Auction

Dorotheum will present another unique curation of classic and contemporary lots by internationally celebrated artists, designers and architects, including Zaha Hadid, Giacomo Manz?, Mathieu Matégot, Stefan Sagmeister and Thomas Feichtner. The sale will include prototypes, unique pieces and rarities, offering a journey through time, from early 20th-century design to the 1950s and contemporary stars.

Highlights include:

  • Zaha Hadid’s “Iceberg” sculpture (shown) was part of the artist’s large retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Applied Arts (MAK), Vienna in 2003. Estimated between 110,000-140,000 EUR, the unique “Iceberg” work is made up of two parts, reminiscent of huge icicles. One part rises as a vertical, the other extends expansively into the horizontal. The two forms are connected by a seat that can be used from both sides: a freestanding object that plays in all directions of the room.
  • “Nastro” (Italian for ribbon) is the title chosen by artist Giacomo Manz? (1908-1991) for a standout piece within the auction, which he created for his own living room in Campo del Fico, near Ardea in the south of Rome. This artwork comes directly from family ownership and is now due to be offered at auction (estimate € 130,000 – 180,000), an unusual abstract form within the artist’s extensive oeuvre.
  • An additional highlight includes a “Santiago” table circa 1954 by Mathieu Matégot, one of the earliest ambassadors of design art andmost renowned French designers of the 1950s. With this creation, Matégot abandoned the archetype of the four-legged table, embracing an object with autonomous sculptural design (estimate € 40,000 – 60,000) – this model was only executed twice as the Societé Matégot closed in 1962. 
  • The New York based graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister’s six-part work MONEY DOES NOT MAKE ME HAPPY will be auctioned (estimate € 12,000 – 20,000), following his travelling exhibition at the Museums of Applied Arts in Vienna (2015) and Frankfurt (2016).
