Design Exchange’s First Design Auction
There are so many great design finds on offer at the Design Exchange’s first-ever benefit auction, which takes place next Friday, May 29, that we’re considering drastic measures — buying lottery tickets, selling our existing stuff, possibly taking out a loan…. Don’t believe us? The Design Exchange Design Auction’s (#DXDA) catalogue includes objects from the personal collections of local and international design stars, and limited edition items from the world-renowned interior design brands. Think mod Dream chairs by Tadao Ando (above), colourful Hans J. Wegner Wishbone chairs, Saarinen side tables, luxe Zaha Hadid flatware and even a trip to trendy art destination Fogo Island. And, of course, it’s for a good cause: proceeds help fund the museum’s educational programs, curatorial initiatives and permanent collection.
