This occasion will be one not to be missed, as the auction will include furniture from the first projects that the two designers worked on together. There will be rare examples of pieces produced in the 60s finished in rosewood and pieces produced at the end of the 80s finished in wenge wood.

Joel Chen, que ahora se deshace de esta muestra, tardó más de 20 años en conseguir reunir semejante colección y quiere dejar constancia de la excepcionalidad de la muestra, ya que hay muebles que rara vez han salido anteriormente a la venta.

Joel Chen, the one now selling off these pieces, spent more than 20 years putting together this collection and wishes to highlight its exceptional nature, especially as it includes some pieces that have hardly ever been on sale.
