Alexandre De Betak’s Art Collection for Auction at Piasa in Paris
Event producer Alexandre De Betak amassed a covetable collection of art and furniture over the years. Some pieces in his collection from his homes in Paris, Mallorca and New York City have even been featured in the New York Times’ T Magazine, Architectural Digest and Nowness.
If you’ve ever wanted to get your hands on De Betak’s collection, now is your best chance (aside from asking him as a friend, of course). The Bureau Betak founder, in partnership with PIASA, is giving the world an opportunity to obtain pieces from his collection with an auction on March 28.
Approximately 200 works that span from the 1930s to the 1980s are to be auctioned this week, including kinetic and contemporary works, collectible robots, acquired in Japan, furniture by Ettore Sottsass, and works that he had designed himself for the ‘Salon de Joie’ for AD Intérieurs in 2015 among other projects. The auction celebrates the aesthete as a collector and also takes the public through his influences.
Having produced over 1,000 events over the last 25 years, De Betak is regarded as one of fashion’s brilliant, creative minds. De Betak has clients such as Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Céline, Fendi and Nike; he has designed installations and interior décor projects for Swarovski, Domeau & Peres, Artcurial, and Hotel Amour; and he launched his first retrospective, Betak: Fashion Show Revolution in 2017 with Phaidon in London. His art collection is definitely worth checking out as an art lover and for those that want to know what makes the creative tick.
Alexandre De Betak’s collection is currently on view at Piasa in Paris through March 28 and will go on auction at 6pm on March 28.
