Many designers in the NYC design community were affected by Sandy in some way.
Editor in Chief of the Designer Pages 3rings and Otto blogs Jean Lin, design/architecture writer Jennifer Krichels Gorsche, and designer Brad Ascalon have teamed up to help raise money – through there amazing blogs and websites – for those affected by the storm through an exhibition and auction of furnishings created from materials reclaimed or salvaged after the storm and of pieces inspired by the flooding. The proceeds of the silent auction will go to the American Red Cross in Greater New York. On Today’s night, you will see these pieces in person at Ligne Roset in Soho from 7-9 PM. Here’s a preview of some auction highlights:
Daniel Moyer’s High+Dry table is an exaggeratedly long legged occasional table made from salvaged lumber on Fire Island.
Brad Ascalon’s special edition of his Ligne Roset Lovey side table: “I Lovey NY.”
Après Lamp 3 has a shade made of weathered “classic” garbage can found on a Red Hook street, which is lined by an insert graciously made of left-over felt by ElasticCo in Brooklyn. The inside light fixture is made of Corian® donated by regional distributor Dolan & Traynor, based in Wayne, NJ. The base is made out of ash left over from UM’s recent series of Atum lamps.
