Here’s Mid-Century Modern design at it’s height. This solid cast bronze room divider has alternating pod shaped sculpted bronze parts in a thick frame and was conceived in the minds of a group of architects in 1959. It was constructed starting in July 1962 and completed in 1964.
Design and planning consultants Victor Gruen worked with King & King Architects and coordinating architects Gordon Schoper Ketcham-Miller-Arnold. This amazing room divider can be assembled as one long unit or two sections on an angle. Total length 209 inches, it consists of two sections, one 101 inch long and one 108 inch long.
Originally this piece was salvaged from the lobby of the Public Safety Building in Syracuse, New York. Below you see it in this original setting.
This amazing piece can be seen at our Madison Avenue location at 149 Madison Avenue in New York City.
