Restoration Station x Yinka Ilori

Read more ...
At Restoration Station, we run workshops for people in recovery, teaching them skills in woodwork and furniture restoration. Their work is sold in our shop to fund our ongoing programme – we’re a non-profit social enterprise, and we rely on furniture donations to keep running.

Earlier this year, we were introduced to the inspirational artist and maker Yinka Ilori, who generously agreed to partner with us on a one-of-a-kind exhibition. We are thrilled to unveil the results of our collaboration for London Design Festival 2017.

In the last few months, Yinka has held a series of hands-on workshops with our volunteers, each of whom has restored and creatively reinvented a donated chair, telling their own stories through Yinka’s unmistakably colourful aesthetic.

You can watch a short film about the project here or read more about the project here.

Each chair is available to buy via this online auction. Bidding is open until midnight on Tuesday 26 September, starting at £100 a chair. Winning bids will be announced on Wednesday 27 September.

Delivery is not included in the price. Chairs can be collected from Restoration Station after the bidding has closed. To enquire about delivery outside of London or overseas please contact  jess@zetteler.co.uk.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
