The $100 Laptop Becomes the $10,000 Laptop

We know we keep touting this gift and that gift as the design gift of the season, but we’re totally serious this time when we say that a purchase from Artists for One Laptop Per Child will absolutely top anything you’ll find in the Sky Mall catalog. Unlike the Give One, Get One deal where you buy one and one goes to a child in need, this benefit and auction features unique works of art inspired by the OLPC laptop. Pieces by Olafur Eliasson, Jorge Pardo, Cindy Sherman, John Baldessari and more will be auctioned online until December 12. Ugo Rondinone‘s sand and mixed media piece (above) is a steal at only $12,000.

Tonight we’ll head over to the exhibition opening sponsored by Luminaire, our friends at I.D. and the Owner of the Best-Designed Abs in the World, Yves Behar. If we’re good, we might even be granted an audience with the Golden One. O great design gods, we don’t ask you for much, but please, please smile upon us tonight!
