The contemporary artists have tailored the products and turned them into symbols of art in support of the annual fundraising ICA Gala on March 29th, 2011.

'Psychedelic' is the theme for this year's ICA event where guests will be treated to a dinner and party with live music, performances and art installations as well as Sotheby's live and silent auctions.

Made.com donated products including Hollander bikes, Piggy Bag beanbags, Arche lamps and Champion Pro football tables to a select group of artists and invited them to respond to the gala's psychedelic theme to customize them.

Says Made.com, "Bidders in the live auction will be able to compete on the night for Damien Hirst's psychedelic spinning take on the Hollander Classic Dutch bike, a Jessica Warboys Piggy Bag or a Jake and Dinos Chapmans' psychedelic Pro football table that is sure to set imaginations wandering."

Gala guests who prefer silent auctions will be able to bid on items such as an "Arche Lamp, either dripping in Gary Webb's psychedelic paint or protruding with John Russell's eye popping art, as well as Alison Jackson's look-a-like celebrity table football game where each player features one of her trademark celebrities."
