Wash and Wear

Think of it as a high-style bake sale. Ilse Crawford and Anne Mieke Eggenkamp, dean and executive board chair at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, have selected projects by 2009 graduates for a selling exhibition at Sotheby's in London. The 25 items will be sold from May 13 to 18.
From the academy's quirkily named Man and Well-Being department, which focuses the emotional and sensory impact of products, Anna van der Lei's BadKast freestanding tub pays tribute to the outdoor sauna at her family's summer house in Finland. From the Man and Leisure department, where students explore the impact of products on free time, Digna Kosse's barely-there Minimal dresses react to the fashion industry's vast consumption of materials.
