The (RED) Desk by Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson



The latest in a string of products designed by Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson for the (RED) charity auction is this one-off aluminium desk.



Australian designer Marc Newson and Apple’s Jonathan Ive covered the surface of the thin desk with a pattern of 185 interlocking cells.

The blade-like legs and top were machined from solid pieces of aluminium by Californian company Neal Feay Studio. The unique piece is inscribed: “Designed by Jony Ive & Marc Newson for (RED) 2013 edition 01/01″.



Yesterday we published a Leica camera designed by the pair, which joins a range of other objects to be auctioned for Bono’s (RED) charity including a pair of solid rose gold Apple EarPods.



The auction will take place at Sotheby’s auction house in New York on 23 November and the proceeds will go towards helping to fight malaria, tuberculosis and AIDS.
