The first Design Auction at the Venduehuis in The Hague, happens tomorrow on October 10, 2012.
Several unique seating objects, created by renowned Dutch designers, will be sold by auction with the slogan ‘a chair for charity’. The list of designers involved includes Maarten Baas, Ted Noten, Richard Hutten and Kiki van Eijk to mention a few.
On invitation of Tim Erpenbeek de Wolff, managing director of the Venduehuis, the 14 designers was instructed to choose a chair from their collection and altered it at their discretion. Additionally, all designers were asked to select a charity to which the auction proceeds of their chair will go.
Especially for the Design Auction at the Venduehuis, design agency Ontwerpwerk has developed a website where you can find the complete digital catalogue of the Design Auction.
You can bid on pieces from the Design Auction in multiple ways: at the Venduehuis, by telephone or by bidding online on the internet. To participate in the Design Auction, you will need a bidding number. For more information about acquiring a bidding number: firstname.lastname@example.org
