AUCTIONATA, the world´s first digital auction house announces its first Italian Design event. Following the success of its June 20th Century Design Auction, it has gathered nearly 100 exclusive lots of lighting, furniture, glass, silver, and ceramics by the Italian masters: Gio Ponti, Ico Parisi, Marco Zanuso, Ettore Sottsass, and Osvaldo Borsani, to name a few.

This unprecedented auction is limited to items by known designers and creators with traceable previous auction results. All items have starting prices substantially below the hammer price at previous auctions and most have no reserves making it an exceptional opportunity to acquire named pieces at far below market prices.

Highlights include an Ico Parisi “Terni” desk, a Gio Ponti porcelain bowl, an Alessandro Mendini “Ollo” chair, and a Marco Zanuso KD58 for Kartell Floor Lamp.

The auction is now open for previewing and bidding at: http://www.auctionata.com/auction-14/italian-design/previewroom
The event will take place on December 8, 2011 at 18:00 CET (12pm EST).
