My personal favorite, designed by Dale Chihuly
On view to the public at the CONRAN SHOP are VIPP stainless steel and rubber trash bins uniquely designed by a roster of leaders from the worlds of art, entertainment, fashion and design. The celebrities created a unique version of the classic VIPP pedal waste bin as part of a fundraising event, a charity auction to benefit the FOOD BANK FOR NEW YORK CITY and CHERNOBYL CHILDREN'S PROJECT INTERNATIONAL. Customized creations from BONO, MICHAEL STIPE, DALE CHIHULY (photo above), MARIO BATALI, DOMINIC WILCOX, BILL SOFIELD, SIMON DOONAN, THOMAS LIBERTINY, MATTIA BIAGI, KARIM RASHID, MENA SUVARI, among others are on public display at the CONRAN SHOP where pre-bidding takes place. The event culminates in Thursday September 18th at the Winston Wächter Fine Art Gallery. The CONRAN shop is located at 59th Street and First Avenue adjacent to the Food Emporium Bridgemarket.
