From Akira Isogawa to Alice Babidge, Cult has attracted names as iconic as its furniture for this new charity project
It's the second incarnation of Chairity, which sees the country's finest creative talent reimagine the Fritz Hansen 'Series 7' chair to be sold via an online auction, with the full proceeds going to a charity of the designer's choice.
Along with Isogawa and Babidge, the list of participating designers includes Ryan Storer, Adam Goodrum, Arent & Pyke, Bassike, Shilo Engelbrecht and Dinosaur Designs. So far interior designer Fiona Lynch's design has attracted the highest offer - $5000 for her chair-turned-mirror-turned-light. The second highest is Akira's, a typically whimsical design upholstered in Japanese fabric with floral and bird motifs, currently sitting at $3500.
The chosen charities include the Fred Hollows Foundation, Guide Dogs NSW/ACT, The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and The Kids' Cancer Project, among others. The auction closes at 8pm on November 22, when those with the highest bids will win their chosen chair as well as a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to celebrate with.
