Apple's design chief, Jony Ive, has been busy designing products such as gold Earpods for for Bono's upcoming (Product) RED auction in New York, and today we get a glimpse at another. Designed in conjunction with with Marc Newson, what we see here is the absolutely stunning Leica M for (RED).
Leica Camera is pleased to present The Leica M for (RED), designed by Jony Ive and Marc Newson. The camera, based off the Leica M, will be auctioned off at Southeby’s on November 23rd 2013 to raise money for The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
From a design standpoint, it features a laser machined aluminum body and an anodized aluminum outer shell. A total of 561 models and nearly 1000 prototype parts were made during the 85 days it took to create of this unique, one of a kind camera.
Bono has already praised the efforts of Apple's support of the (Product) RED charity with over $65million in contributions so far. This Leica M isn't going to be sold cheap, but it'll go up for auction with everything else on November 23 at Sotheby's in New York.
