"Under-the-radar Italian architect-designer Paolo Buffa has recently attracted an elite group of plugged-in collectors.
This handsome Bar Cabinet offers a rare opportunity to acquire a gorgeous piece of his classically inspired oeuvre.
The son of a well-regarded artist, Buffa was something of a prodigy.
In the late 1920s, after graduating from the Politecnico di Milano, he briefly worked for the legendary Gio Ponti before striking out on his own.
Between the 1930s and 1960s, his designs for bespoke and serial furnishings displayed a unique blend of classical and modernist principles, and were executed by the finest Lombardy cabinetmakers.
His clients included the haute bourgeoisie of northern Italy, where he lived, as well as King Zog of Albania and King Farouk of Egypt, to name just a few".
