About

Welcome to Room 606

Room 606 is a specialist antiques business dealing in design from the last 150 years.

It covers the Arts and Crafts period to the 1970s, but has a particular focus on the modernist avant-gardes of the 1920s and 1930s.

It serves both individual collectors and design professionals.

For example Room 606 can supply the original period fittings required for high-end architectural and interior design projects and exceptional artifacts of historical significance to museums.

It additionally deals in rare and antiquarian books on the subjects of design, architecture and photography.

Room 606 is run by me, Matthew Grice. I have been collecting twentieth century design since the early 1990s. This passion was ignited by my studies – he has two university degrees, a BA (Hons) in the History of Modern Art, Design and Film and a MA in Communications Studies.

I'm also a freelance writer and editor, with a strong background in internet journalism. Prior to starting Room 606 I was sub-editor, reporter and features writer for the Press Association in the UK.

I also work as a consultant for the German-based eCommerce company and online auction house Auctionata AG, specializing in the Bauhaus, the Czech avant-garde and other twentieth century design. In June 2014 I collaborated on the organisation of a major specialist sale titled 'Timeless Bauhaus Design' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTBRhskfOOo). The auction saw important works from all the major players of the Bauhaus movement converge in one place. The highlight was a tea set co-created by the ceramists Theodor Bogler und Otto Lindig, which finished the auction with a hammer price of €54,000 (incl. buyer's premium).
