Summer's coming to a close, folks, and we're headed into a hectic schedule that'll undoubtedly result in another fallow period for GG&S. As (a meager) consolation, we've decided to unveil some of the items we've picked up recently.
Here's a Laurel lamp we nabbed earlier this month. As some of you may remember, we picked up a brushed steel example a year or so ago; however, we remained on the lookout for a more colorful specimen, and we were pleased to turn up this green beauty, as it fits our den so perfectly!
Here's another recent addition to our den. Valery loves the Mondrian-inspired wall clock Sunbeam produced in the 60s, but I've always been partial to this'un—which is way more indebted to an Eames or Nelson approach toward modernism. We'd also appreciate any leads on a reasonably priced Mondrian-esque Sunbeam, if anyone knows of any!
Our buddy Darrell sold us this handsome Guzzini tray designed by Ornella Noorda a few months ago. Coincidentally enough, we also found a complementary coffee cup and (matching) ashtray set while we were visiting Pittsburgh ...and later on we also discovered a similar plate produced by Mancioli. Thanks again, Darrell!
Our pal Maxime felt sorry for us and put us on the trail of some NOS Dedalino desk organizers, produced by Idarco and designed by Emma Gismondi Schweinberger. Now we just need to figure out where to put 'em! Thanks, Maxime!
On a final note, we've continued to keep our shelves stocked by picking up another Gonk mascot, a springy red weirdo from Denmark, a ruby-schnozzed drunkard mask from the 60s and a Finnish Fauni bank from the 70s. Lastly, a big thank you to Hannele for the bank—your package ships this week. So sorry for the delay!
