FURNITURE AND DESIGN: THE NEW ITEMS PRESENTED AT MASTERPIECE ART FAIR
The great names of modern and mid Twentieth century design such as Jean Prouvéo Fredrikson Stallard are dedicated a considerable amount of space within the Masterpiece Art Fair and some works are created especially for the fair. The Based Upon studio, for example, has created a desk inspired by the cultural roots of the client and his early childhood in Siberia.
