Renowned artists VC Johnson, Erik Brunetti, Natas Kaupas, Ben Tour, Fighting and 23 other artists including eight from the Lifetime Collective, will clock in some extra hours this winter as they lend their talents and skills to “Useless Wooden Toys”, a unique art initiative developed by Furni and Rekognize Design and Marketing to raise funds for skate4cancer.
The program features 27 artists from the USA, Canada and Europe who will each custom-design a Mullen clock from Furni Creations, a hand-crafted furnishings company with its roots in the skate- board industry. The 27 clocks will then be auctioned off on eBay from February 11 2007 to May 27, 2007, with all proceeds going to the skate4cancer organization.
The artists’ completed works will be featured in “Useless Wooden Toys“, a vernissage at Off the Hook Boutique in Montreal (1021 A St. Catherine W.).
Furni’s Mullen is a contemporary wall mounted digital clock in a stylish rectangular shape made of beech wood that is the ideal blank canvas for any artist. The clock measures approximately 16” x 9” and features an “old-school” red LED clock display.
