How much would you pay for a desk that hath no drawers? You’d think it would be hard to give away, but not on this wacky planet.. Not by a long shot..
The overly simplistic desk was produced by Neal Feay Studio and just went to the highest bidder for a cool $1.8 million dollars.. Drawers not included.
A Leica Digital Rangefinder camera also sold for $1.8 million and a Steinway & Sons “Red Pops for (RED)” Parlor Grand Piano (which Coldplay’s Chris Martin played, big whoop,) was won by philanthropist Stewart Rahr for $1.9 million.
It was all for a good cause as Jony Ive and Marc Newson collaborated with Bono to raise $26 million dollars for The Global Fund, which helps fight AIDS in Africa.
