Come Rain Come Shine Chandelier (2004) by Tord Boontje, estimated at $3,000–$5,000. Handmade by the Coopa Roca, a women’s cooperative based in Rio de Janeiro’s largest favela, Rocinha, and employing humanitarian values and artisan production methods consistent with Artecnica’s Design with Conscience campaign, Tord Boontje’s “Come Rain Come Shine” brings playful sophistication to any interior. Constructed from a circular metal structure embellished with crocheted cotton, organza, and silk blossoms, this chandelier casts a dramatic glow when lit.
The New York design impresario, consultant, and pioneering eye of the '90s and early aughts auctions off items from his former gallery and personal collection with Paddle8.
