Next Thursday, DWR will auction off ten pink Spinneybeck Florence Knoll benches in Studios across the country. These auctions will benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation. The New York-area Studios have taken that concept one step further, and each studio here has gathered an array of items for separate auctions throughout the evening.
At the Meatpacking District Studio we’ve compiled items and artwork from neighborhood artists and brands, creating an "instant art/design collection in a box." The box will be up for auction, along with the limited-edition bench.
The "box" also includes signed art books from Steven Guarnaccia, Annie Leibovitz, Richard Schulman and Marco Pasanella, a coffee table book from House Industries and a book and a one-year magazine subscription from ReadyMade magazine. Artwork has been provided by James Victore, Rodger Stevens and Carol Peligian. Chilewich donated pink place settings for four and a bottle of rose was given by Pasanella and Son. Rounding out the package is dinner for two at two iconic restaurants: The Modern and Florent.
The window will be up through next Thursday and then auctioned off at our charity auction event at the Flatiron Studio on Thursday, October 25. More information on the Chelsea items here, and more information on the Flatiron event here and companywide events here.
