Zaha Hadid Design with the David Gill Gallery have created a unique red Liquid Glacial Coffee Table for the (RED) Auction 2018 curated by Bono, David Adjaye, and Theaster Gates.
The auction includes pieces by Zaha Hadid Design, Ai Wei Wei, Jeff Koons, Frank Gehry, Mark Quinn, Theaster Gates, and David Adjaye.
Previous (RED) Auctions have cumulatively raised $68 million, with proceeds from this year's auction supporting community-based HIV and AIDS programmes in Africa (Global Fund to Fight Aids) and also community programmes in Chicago run by the Rebuild Foundation established by Theaster Gates.
Nominated by London's Design Museum as one of the Design's of the Year in 2012, the Liquid Glacial Table comprises gentle waves and ripples beneath the flat surface of its table-top, while its legs pour from the horizontal plane in a vortex emulating frozen water in time. The transparency of acrylic amplifies this perception, adding depth and complexity through infinite refractions.
The pieces included in the (RED) Auctions will be exhibited by the Gagosian Gallery during Art Basel Miami at the city's Moore Building until the 7th of December.
Sotheby's will conduct a live auction on the evening of the 5th of December.
