Brad Ascalon designed a special edition of his Ligne Roset side table, "I Love NY," for the Reclaim NYC auction.
Calling all designers: If you're in New York and you spot a fine piece of abandoned wood, don't let it go to waste. It may have the makings of a chair, table, or sleek tchotchke that design-minded New Yorkers will shell out hard cash for in an upcoming Reclaim NYC auction that will benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Daniel Moyer's High + Dry Table, a long-legged occasional table made from wood salvaged on Fire Island.
The group, formed last month by designer Brad Ascalon, writer Jennifer K. Gorsche, and Designer Pages editor-in-chief Jean Lin, is calling on designers to use their smarts to turn damage into dollars for still-much-needed hurricane relief.
The silent auction will take place December 19 at Ligne Roset's SoHo showroom, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Look out for designs from Uhuru, Fort Standard (which recently made this awesome rope necklace), and Dror Benshetrit, whom you may remember from Studio Dror's genius emergency-housing kit. With two dozen designers signed on so far, there should be plenty of opportunities to refresh your conscience and your apartment at the same time.
