Sold on 19 June 2012 at Phillips de Pury in London, Luminary was a delightful project co-designed by stars, respected businesspeople and society's brightest alike. All proceeds of the sale were donated in full to the Elton John Aids Foundation, and we are very proud to have contributed towards this great cause.
Over 1000 delicate flower petals were assembled by celebrity guests at a Halcyon gallery event in late 2011. Each of the guests signed their flowers which were then assembled to become the Luminary sculpture.
This and other works by noted designers and artists such as Thomas Heatherwick and Tracey Emin were featured on Sky Arts series 'Objects of desire'.
