There’s been a lot of hype surrounding the (RED) charity auction curated by Jony Ive and Marc Newson—particularly in regards to their one-of-a-kind desk and Leica camera designs. Well, it all goes down tomorrow (Saturday 11/23) at Sotheby’s in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. In preparation for the auction, Sotheby’s held a limited-engagement exhibition to show off the 43 objects that represent some of the best achievements in design over the last century ranging from furniture design to surfboards and record players to spacesuits. Jony, Marc, and (RED) co-founder Bono were even in attendance on Friday to answer questions, stand by their favorite items, and most importantly, get people hyped up about a great cause. SolidSmack stopped by to see what the fuss was all about and grabbed some pics of the items before they head off into the hands of buyers. Here’s some of our favorites in the 43-piece auction lot.
