Reclaim NYC: Design Auction for Sandy Relief
Reclaim NYC invites you to its second exhibit and charity sale, Reclaim x2: design that's more than the sum of its parts, during New York Design Week 2013.
As the city works to recover from Hurricane Sandy, Reclaim NYC would like to reach out to the design community with an opportunity to help those who have suffered terrible losses during the storm. They are calling upon designers to use debris and refuse materials from the storm to create pieces of furniture and art that will be auctioned for charity.
Proceeds from the sale will go to local Hurricane Sandy relief through the Brooklyn Recovery Fund.
- As commissions for new furniture and lighting roll in, third-generation designer Brad Ascalon carries on the family tradition.
Join Senior Editor Kelsey Keith for a conversation with designer Brad Ascalon, who will touch on his family's design legacy and how his position as a third-generation designer has informed his aesthetic sensibilities. Ascalon, featured in Dwell's October 2013 issue, will share archival images of his grandfather and father's decorative work alongside his own recent furnishings for such companies as Stylex, Juniper, Gaia & Gino, NWBLK, Ligne Roset and Design Within Reach. Followed by refreshments.

- Now in its third year, WantedDesign is proving to be a crucial stop on the New York Design Week train.
The original Mirror Puzzle was a not-so-standard jigsaw—Wong substituted reflective pieces for standard printed cardboard. Ascalon’s black-and-brass stained glass evolves the thoughtful concept.
- In essence, wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection, profoundness in nature and valuing authenticity above all else.

Come celebrate and support New York City's public spaces at Design Trust's Art + Design Benefit Auction for a festive evening of cocktails and conversation. The event is hosted by Kitty Hawks as well as Interior Design's Cindy Allen and culminates in a silent auction of over 80 artworks including pieces from Artek, Dune, Royal Botania, and UM Project.
Proceeds will support Design Trust's work, including Five Borough Farm, their citywide initiative to strengthen and expand urban architecture. A portion of proceeds will go to hurricane relief efforts.
