Even on the third day of the auction marathon, many a high-quality object met with huge interest.

A display cabinet, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925 was very popular. Made by Tecta in the 1980/90s, it doubled its estimate and was knocked down at €3,000. Philip Arctander's 'Clam' chair is still highly coveted. Having retained its original yellow/brown fabric cover, it received €6,500. The enthusiasm for Charles and Ray Eames' 'Soft Pad' desk chairs remains unbridled. While a pair of swivel chairs attained €1,700, €1,400 were allowed for a single chair on wheels.

In the contemporary German Design selection, Oliver Vogt's and Hermann August Weizenegger's 'Sinterchair No. 0' stands out. The knock-down chair from the year 2001, of sintered nylon powder, increased its price from €1,500 up to €2,200. In the Arts and Crafts section, Beate Kuhn's object, 1996, received €2,600 despite a small restoration. A rare 'Goofy' figurine by The Walt Disney Company was on offer too. It was set at €500 and climbed up to €2,000. The highest hammer price was paid for a pair of 'XXL Dome' ceiling lights by Ingo Maurer. Painted aluminium silver and pink for a restaurant in Munich they will find a new place of activity in Hamburg for €12,000.
