New York designer Joe Doucet has taken empty water bottles he stocked up on during Hurricane Sandy to make nine art objects.
The cast solid acrylic forms range from clear to opaque black symbolizing the deepening crisis water caused over time, during and after Sandy. Doucet's Water, Water series will be auctioned at Reclaim NYC to raise money for those affected by the storm.
Woodworker Daniel Moyer's high+dry.table is an exaggeratedly long legged occasional table made from salvaged lumber on Fire Island.
Reclaim NYC is an event created by New York City's design community to raise money for those affected by Superstorm Sandy. The event, an auction, will feature furniture created from materials reclaimed or salvaged after the storm in addition to pieces inspired by the flooding.
Lighting designer Lindsey Adelman is planning a lighting fixture utilizing found branches backlit with LEDs.
Object collectors will have a unique opportunity to take home a piece of the storm while benefitting those most affected by it. More than 20 designers have pledged pieces to the silent auction, the proceeds of which will go to the American Red Cross in Greater New York.
Brad Ascalon will be showcasing a special edition of his Lovey side table for Ligne Roset: "I Lovey NY."
