British designer Michael Young’s colorful 2012 Wall Clock, made of folded Chinese newspapers and aluminum in Hong Kong, was a popular hit on the Modernity Gallery stand at this spring's Pavillon des Arts et du Design (PAD) in the Tuileries Gardens. The Stockholm gallery is devoted to 20th-century Scandinavian furniture and objects, but founder Andrew Duncanson likes to surprise collectors by showing the occasional unique or limited-edition contemporary piece, too. And it works beautifully. On the stand, the great Danish Modern designer Frits Henningsen’s superb 1935 natural leather and teak high wingback chair was a perfect foil to Young’s newspaper-mosaic clock. There is nothing more 21st-century than The Mix. www.modernity.se
