New York, May 2, 2008 — Humanscale will kick off an online preview of the eighth annual Faces in the Wild fundraiser on May 5, 2008. Online bidding will precede a cocktail party and live and silent art auctions scheduled for May 13, 2008, in Humanscale’s New York City showroom.

Prestigious artists and designers—including Yves Behar, Black + Blum, Scott Henderson, Karim Rashid, Marcel Wanders, and Scott Wilson of MNML—have created and generously donated approximately 50 pieces of animal-inspired artwork. Humanscale will double and donate all winning bids to World Wildlife Fund.
In 2007, Faces in the Wild generated $26,000 for wildlife conservation, and since 2000, Faces in the Wild has raised more than $200,000, including matching donations by Humanscale. The largest conservation organization in the world, WWF leads international efforts to protect endangered species and their habitats. By 2015, the organization hopes to conserve 19 of the world’s most important natural places, including the Galapagos and Congo Basin, and significantly change global forces like agriculture and climate change to protect the future of nature.
Humanscale founder and CEO Bob King has served on WWF’s National Council since 1999. As a company, Humanscale is dedicated to environmental sustainability and continually strives to design, engineer and manufacture products that consume less of Earth’s limited resources.
