Friends of the Design Trust gathered at Rafael Viñoly Architects on October 12, 2004, for a benefit auction for the Design Trust for Public Space. In honor of the Halloween season, the evening featured over 20 one-of-a-kind working lanterns, created for the event by top names in the design world, including Isaac Mizrahi, LOT-EK, Antony Todd, and Ali Tayar & Natalia Echeverri.

A silent auction included artwork and objects by a diverse group of over 120 artists, including David Smith, Cindy Sherman, Ross Bleckner, Chuck Close, and David Mann.

The evening included cocktails, Brooklyn Brewery’s finest, and creative catering and service by Rice. Local favorites Chanterelle, Bottino, and Restaurant Florent also provided delectable treats. The Design Trust thanks Kitty Hawks, event chair, and Suzanne Slesin and Michael Steinberg, auction co-chairs. Special thanks to our event sponsors, Rice, a culinary pioneer in Nolita and DUMBO, and Maharam, a New York-based textile firm committed to progressive environmental practices.
