We are proud to present an auction of the original neon letters from London's Centre Point tower....🏢
Decommissioned in the redevelopment of the London landmark, these neon letters were replaced with more energy efficient LED lights. Almacantar, the team behind the changes, took it upon themselves to use the leftover letters for good.
Working in collaboration with some of the biggest names in contemporary art including Gavin Turk, Laure Provoust, Conrad Shawcross, Mark Wallinger and more, these 11 letters have been transformed into 11 beautiful sculptures - all of which will be sold to benefit the youth homeless charity Centrepoint.
The Centrepoint charity works throughout the UK to give homeless young people a future. Funds raised in the auction will help them in this mission.
The letters will be auctioned off by The Auction Collective, in collaboration with Christie's, at VIVI Restaurant on 24 June.
As ever, there will be no buyer's commission, you can bid over the phone, with absentee bids or by joining us on the night. Places are limited so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rob & Nick Carter with their letter 'O' £3,000 - 8,000

Ever wondered what BTB stands for? It’s by the bridge - you know that one with the amazing views of Sydney. We are the last shop underneath it and only a stones throw away from the harbour. Perfect for a picnic on an autumn’s day 🍃🍂🍃🍂
