Superstar designers on a mission: Created to help fight AIDS in Africa, (RED) Desk by Jony Ive & Marc Newson is a signed one-of-a-kind, machined from solid aluminum, with an intricate cellular surface pattern, fabricated by renowned aluminum specialists Neal Feay Studio.
The table, along with the one-of-a-kind Leica M Rangefinder and a pair of solid gold EarPods, which were both designed by Ive, will be auctioned via Sotheby's on November 23. Proceeds will go to Product (RED), a longtime Apple partner. Apple has raised more than $65 million for the charity since 2006.
