Into the Fire

Every once in a while I come across a piece of design while searching for something completely different and it renders me speechless.  Today is no different! While on 1stDibs looking for some interesting chairs for a project down in the West Village, I came across these Giacometti andirons and had to stop and take a moment to admire.  To me they are the epitome of form and functional.  Sold through Wyeth here in New York these 1950’s pieces are made of guilt bronze and iron.  I love the shape, materiality and scale of these pieces, and although made almost 70 years ago they still feel so current and really would make a statement in any fireplace - you’ll have to leap over the $24,000 price tag to take these home though!
