Lot 317Pedro Friedeberg Gilt and Painted Wood Mirror

Mexican artist Pedro Friedeberg created his iconic hand chair in the 1960s and the public has been clamouring for his work ever since. His mirrors are imbued with the same whimsical surreal flair, but are much rarer on the market. The present example from a home designed by David Barrett, welcomed guests in the entry hall and gave a nod to the incredible interior that awaited them.
