Actually, it is 1000000% correct, but you seem to want to switch between popularity and price at each turn. You are probably Canadian. Now piss off.
No, you get expensive because there is greater demand than supply. Her supply is very limited for original works unlike almost every other modernist furniture maker. It is more akin to somebody like Jean-Michel Frank, and frankly, the work and concept is far more similar to Frank and similar people than it is to any sort of modernism. I don't know if you have had much experience with auction houses like Christies, but they cater to a certain type of buyer, and the...

Fuck Muni.
