Provenance: Helmut Jahn, widely regarded as one of the world's most influential architects of our time, emigrated to Chicago in 1967 from where he still operates his practice. His work evolves from the purist principles of Mies van der Rohe progressing along advanced technological lines in the creation of his modern artifacts. He applies the balanced synthesis of function, technology and aesthetics to glass structures in his quest to achieve the ultimate expression of transparency. For the Meisterstück 149, Helmut Jahn and his London studio Jahn Lykouria Design have created a case of solid acrylic screen etched with an original manuscript by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe held in Montblanc's archives.
