AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria research got a boon over the weekend, thanks to Marc Newson and Jonathan (Jony) Ive, who organized a charity auction at Sotheby’s New York to benefit (RED), the Global Fund to Fight AIDS in Africa. In addition to designing two of the auction’s offerings (including the one-off Leica camera we covered earlier, which sold for a staggering $1.6M ), Ive and Newson customized two Knoll classics just for the sale—Richard Schultz’s Petal Table, and Harry Bertoia’s Bird Lounge Chair. Sold as a pair, and estimated to sell for $20,000-30,000, Schultz and Bertoia went for a sizzling $75,000, helping to push the auction’s total to a highly charitable $26M.
