The auction house, Sotheby’s, recently released a short teaser of its upcoming (RED) charity auction with curators Jony Ive and Marc Newson describing how they selected and, in some cases, created the pieces up for bid. The (RED) auction is said to feature several products ranging from a surfboard to a red anodized Mac Pro that showcase what Ive and Newson believe to be some of the best examples of modern design. Ive explained the following:
The criteria that we both had was we both wanted to own each one really badly.
For those who can afford the hefty prices, the auction gives people a chance to own works made in collaboration between two of this century’s most important designers. Bono will be putting on the auction as part of his (RED) fund, which is good for its partnership with major retailers such as Apple.
