The brightest couple of the evening, who most actively placed bets and purchased new works of art for their collection, received a special gift from Sber Private Banking and Mriya Resort & SPA for a seven-day dream vacation. Mriya Resort & SPA is the world's leading premium resort from Sber, which has won more than 100 international and Russian awards at leading hospitality industry awards.

The impressive-scale complex, located between a picturesque mountain range and the endless expanse of the sea, includes a five-star hotel, 37 villas, a medical center, the Mriya Life Institute for Active Longevity, 24 restaurants and bars with unique gastronomic concepts, a balneological complex, a high-quality SPA center, Japanese garden "Six Senses", children's amusement park "Dreamwood" and wine tourism center WINEPARK.

The Hadassah Medical Moscow medical center presented the buyer of the 11th lot (video art “Fireworks” and photo collage “Fuel to the Fire” by Evgeny Granilshchikov) with a check-up - a comprehensive medical examination program in the Russian branch of the Israeli hospital, built according to the canons of a healing environment and surrounded by works contemporary art.

Partner of the 11th Charity Auction of the Cosmoscow Foundation, the Beluga brand presented at the auction a unique decanter from the limited edition Beluga Epicure Noir by Lalique, released in the amount of 10 copies - the result of cooperation between Beluga and the French House of Lalique. The decanter went under the hammer for 3,000,000 rubles and became the most expensive lot of the last auction. The exquisite decanter, handcrafted from black crystal and plated in platinum, depicts the dance of René Lalique's famous Bacchae in an updated interpretation - the mysterious priestesses are surrounded by ears of wheat, which are a symbol of harvest and fertility.

Another special lot from the BORK company - an exclusive storage system from the BORK Home collection, which allows you to protect all the most valuable things at home: art, documents, jewelry and money - went at auction for 325,000 rubles. The steel case is covered with genuine Italian leather and covered inside with a soft Alcantara fabric finish. The biometric lock can be opened using a fingerprint.

The unique design, embodied on the model specifically for the 11th Charity Auction of the Cosmoscow Foundation 2024, echoes its concept. The sketch refers to the goddess of fate and happiness, Fortuna, who is trying to maintain balance in a world as unpredictable and changeable as herself. The background for the image was elements of Japanese style, iconic for the BORK brand. The storage system and drawing are made by hand.

Another memorable experience for auction guests was the collaboration between STONE and digital artist Katya Garnet - the “Architectural Perspectives” project, in which art is inspired by STONE architecture and the Cosmoscow Foundation 2024 auction theme “Vertigo”. The art installation was based on building relationships between technology, architecture and nature. Artist Katya Garnet demonstrated the meditative interaction of fractals with the contrasting environment of STONE architecture: a minimalist interior and a massive fractal created a dialogue with each other without contradicting each other, but on the contrary enhanced the effect of visual experience in the process of their intersection.

The authors of the collaboration, STONE and artist Katya Garnet, invited guests to conduct an individual architectural meditation, in which each visual element served to enhance perception and interaction with the dynamics of digital art. The art installation was an attempt to transform art into a functional component of the urban environment, creating a synergy of structural resonance.

The mood of the evening was created by floral arrangements from BURO ALL DESIGN, which also presented a special floral arrangement inspired by lot No. 20, a work by Alisa Gorelova from the “Tightness” series.

From May 15 to May 31, on the TEO by Cosmoscow online platform, you can see and purchase works from a special selection of works by artists who were presented at the 11th Charity Auction of the Cosmoscow Foundation. The TEO by Cosmoscow platform traditionally supports the curatorial concept of Alexey Maslyaev and provides the opportunity to purchase works of his chosen participating artists to a wider range of buyers.
