On the Auction Block
Exquisite DUNBAR Model 4871 Bench from Edward Wormley's penthouse auctioned off at Phillips Auction in New York.
Henning Watterston (1916-2009), who designed the original fabric used in the cushion (not shown) and decking accompanying this lot, taught weaving to his fellow apprentices at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin before moving to New York in the late 1940s. Upon arrival, Watterston contacted Edward Wormley, who helped him obtain business as an independent designer with such firms as Dunbar, Knoll, and Schumacher
