(RED) at Sothebys Auction
On the 23rd November two of the world's foremost design pioneers, Sir Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson CBE, collaborated with musician Bono to organise a (RED) Auction at Sothebys in New York, celebrating the very best in design and innovation. Jony and Marc spent the last year and a half curating the collection, which included special one-of-a-kind versions of Snoopy, Arco and Piani by Flos.
The auction raised a stagering $26.2million after the Gates Foundation doubled the amount raised on the night. The Snoopy, which was the first lot of the night, went for $137,000, Piani for $75,000 and Arco for $68,750 far out performing their $15,000 - $20,000 estimates. All proceeds have gone to the Global fund to help fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
