NEW YORK - Design pioneers Sir Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson formed a dream collection of 43 design objects – all to be sold at Sotheby’s to benefit (RED) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Here are five of their favourites.

Hermès, “Cavale” Saddle. For Jony & Marc, it is the consummate craftsmanship of Hermès that lifts the 176-year-old company to design’s top ranks.

Leica, Digital Rangefinder Camera. Jony & Marc partnered with the legendary camera manufacturer to design a singular new example of the classic.

Christian Louboutin, Pair of Bespoke Boots. With their iconic red soles signifying taste and prestige, the Parisian designer’s shoes were a natural fit in the (RED) auction.

Jony Ive And Marc Newson, The (RED) Desk. The designers’ shared love of aluminium is reflected in this unique object, created specifically for the auction. 

Steinway & Sons, Unique “Red Pops For (RED).” A fascination with pianos and awe for this revered maker led to this one-of-a-kind beauty, a Parlor Grand Model A Piano.
