Tonight (late notice I know!) there will be an auction of 100 vases at the Alessi store in SoHo. These are part of the 100% Make-Up project from 1992, produced by Alessi and Alessandro Mendini. 100 artists and designers were invited to decorate a porcelain vase designed by Mendini, with each participant producing 100 copies of their work, for a total lot of 10,000 items. Participants included Philippe Starck, Brian Eno, Milton Glaser, and Ettore Sottsass Jr. among others. You can read some background about the project here. RSVP to "RSVP15-at-bdeonline.biz" if you are interested in attending.
