The highlights of the Scandinavian selection were the most popular on the first of three auction days. Thus, two aficionados increased the price for Bodil Kjaer's elegant writing desk, 1959, famous for its appearance in two James Bond movies, from €15,000 to €23,000. A German collector secured himself Tapio Wirkkala's 'TW 9' bowl, 1954, for its lower estimate of €9,000. The eleven-partite 'PK 111' screen by Poul Kjaerholm, 1956 will go back to its designer's Danish home country for €8,000. Gaudy glass objects were sought after as well, Oiva Toikka's 'Bird' from the 1960s changed hands for €2,800.
