If the last month has shown us anything, it’s that New Yorkers know how to mobilize in the face of disaster. We’ve been tracking numerous organizations focused on bringing relief to Hurricane Sandy victims, and the latest to come out of the woodwork is Reclaim NYC. The initiative, started by writer Jennifer Krichels Gorsche, Designer Pages‘ Editor-in-chief Jean Lin, and designer Brad Ascalon, invited over 20 artists and designers to create one-of-a-kind furniture and objects using reclaimed materials from the storm. In about two weeks, the works will be put up for a silent auction and all proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross in Greater New York to benefit those still feeling the effects of Sandy. Check out our gallery for a sneak peek of what will be included in the auction, and stay tuned for more designs – including a piece from Inhabifriends and reclaimed woodworkers extraordinaire Uhuru! The Reclaim NYC silent auction will take place on December 19th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Ligne Roset’s SoHo showroom, located at 155 Wooster Street. Come out, see all the fantastic work, and open your pocketbooks for a good cause – we’ll see you there!
