Well, here's an unexpected scoop from our own Don Lehman, who just documented what is likely the most surreal scene we'll see this month: Jony Ive, Marc Newson and Bono piling into a custom Fiat Jolly—designed by the two industrial design megastars for their muscian friend's charity event—for a photo opp with Lot 43 of the upcoming (RED) Auction.
Don stopped by the exhibition, which is open to the public at Sothebys' New York City HQ at 71st and York, this afternoon, hoping to catch a glimpse of the one-of-a-kind desk and Leica camera, also designed by the dynamic duo, along with some 40+ other art and design objects, only to find the room closed off for a private gathering. It turns out that the triumvirate were inspecting the goods—Don reports that he also overheard Bono's fingers dancing on the custom Steinway—in anticipation of Jony and Marc's (RED) Auction this Saturday.
Here are a couple of videos of Jony, Marc and Bono having their way with the Fiat:
Celebrity sighting notwithstanding, Don reports that he didn't get a chance to see the desk, fabricated by Neal Feay studio, or Leica M in person, though he was impressed with the Mac Pro:
