Of the series of limited-edition collaborative products that we introduced this season, a few are so rare that we couldn’t even offer them for sale. To get your hands on some amazing objects with 100% of the proceeds going to NYC-based not-for-profits check out our four auctions below. Each ends Sunday 19 December 2010 so we can ship them to you for the holidays.
From the shores of Lake Neuchâtel to the Cool Hunting pop up shop at 680 Fifth Avenue, the Marvin “Toujours Plus” Malton 160 was produced in an edition of eight. The Toujours Plus, handcrafted for Cool Hunting, celebrates the reintroduction of Marvin to the U.S. market after a twenty year hiatus. This is the only remaining one, and it can be yours! 100% of the sale price will benefit Animal Haven Shelter, a New York City nonprofit dedicated to finding a loving home for abandoned cats and dogs.
Our other auction items involve a product that you can’t even get your hands on until later in 2011. TDK’s new produce range, called Life On Record, includes a three-speaker boombox
with a 6-inch subwoofer as well as two 6-inch coaxial drivers that can deliver a robust range of sounds.
In addition the line includes a two-speaker boombox with a shoulder strap. TDK further realizes their vision of bringing old-school chic into 2011 with the limited-edition turntable they’re pre-releasing through the auction. The new-age music-players will be available next year, but through our charity auction benefiting Musicians On Call, you can be the first kid on the block paying homage to Radio Raheem with editions customized in green leather by leather maestro Mathieu Brown.
