I would like to take a moment to point out a brilliant project that brings style, art, and breast cancer together — The Pink Wishbone Project.
“Breast cancer research is an undeniably worthy endeavor, but the container-loads of pink objects that have been sold to help pay for it aren’t always what you’d call high design. Which is why the arrival of the Pink Wishbone Project is welcome news. Thanks to Suite New York, a Manhattan furniture showroom, Hans Wegner’s famous Wishbone Chair, made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son, will be available in pink for the next year, with 20 percent of its sales going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. And to draw attention to the program, Barneys New York will exhibit chairs that were customized by 20 leading women designers. (A kickoff cocktail party takes place on Thursday evening at Barneys.)” — NY Times
All of these beautiful chairs and more are currently for auction on charitybuzz.com.
