Alongside a number of artists and designers, Virgil Abloh is joining forces with Design Yard Sale, an organisation who are auctioning creative works to fight anti-black racism.
For his contribution, the Off-White founder will be auctioning a “doorstop chair” from the designer’s collaboration with Ikea. Virgil has also pledged to make the piece an exclusive 1/1 by signing the winner’s name to the chair.
All proceeds from the chair will be going to Bail Project, who support those unable to pay bail, and Colloqate Design – a design and architecture firm that create spaces of “racial, social and cultural equity.”
See the Instagram post where Virgil announced the news below and bid on the Design Yard Sale Website.
