Japanese designer Nigo is unloading a bunch of contemporary art, jewellery, and furniture from his personal collection through a Sotheby’s auction entitled NIGO® Only Lives Twice. The founder of Bape said “I wanted to have an estate sale of my own but obviously I couldn’t get any enjoyment from it myself if I was dead. So I decided to do it now.”

Take a look at the entire auction here.

Blank Canvas!

Students at Ravensbourne College of Design in London have come up with an ingenious way to raise funds for their grad show, a project called Blank Canvas! Packages containing objects purchased in thrift shops were sent out to many of the students’ favourite designers and illustrators to act as blank canvases. The objects were customized by the recipients and sent back, and now the students are having an auction of the work on April 30th at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane.
