SEATTLE, WA – On February 28, 2018, OpenSquare hosted the Bassline Social & Charity Silent Auction benefiting Seattle Based Music4Life program. OpenSquare was honored to help this organization that provides ready-to-play musical instruments to participating public school districts for use by students in need.
Twelve local design firms created custom tables using the new Steelcase Bassline table base. Table designs ranged from the eclectic “Sound Wave” by JPC Architects to modern sculpture of “the Caesure” table by SABArchitects. Other contributing firms included Nelson Architecture, Buffalo Design, Clark Barnes, Collins Woerman, Gensler, GGLO, Interior Architects, LMN, Mithun and Weber Thompson. Tables were auctioned off during an evening of music and charity.
“Music4Life is a great charity doing wonderful work in our community,” said Jeff Rospond, President & CEO at OpenSquare. “We were fortunate enough to have all of these talented designers donate their time and materials to create custom designs solely to raise money for a great organization while showcasing the versatile Bassline table from Steelcase.”
“OpenSquare deserves congratulations for a wonderful event,” says David Endicott, Co-Founder & President of Music4Life.org. “An enthusiastic mix of clients, vendors and employees interested in their work and in the community betterment. Good food. Good fun. A great time. I’m looking forward to the next event.”

Research show that students who participate in instrumental music activities tend to do better in math, science, history, international languages, literature, reading, writing, even in computer science and other scholastic disciplines that provide a full, basic education. Unless their families cannot afford to get them a musical instrument in the first place. Music4Life™ gives students access to fully repaired, ready-to-play musical instruments that are necessary to participate in instrumental music activities. The goal of Music4Life is to acquire the musical instruments needed to expand music programs. Simply having musical instruments available for music students allows schools to expand student participation significantly. http://www.music4life.org/
