Charity Box for Japan, in Geneva

Wednesday 28 September 2011 Launch & Exhibition

The touring exhibition of Charity Box for Japan in Geneva is still opened - another week to go, until 5 October. 

The show is sponsored by No Mad, location is at Intercloisons showroom, 19 rue de l'Arquebuse, Geneva.

This exhibition started in Milano during the Salone del Mobile this April.  58 designers designed a charity box each, using creativity to help raise funds.  With the warm support of visitors, the show raised 7,803 Euro, which was forwarded to two prefectures which were damaged most severely by the tsunami.

Our design for this exhibition is a birdhouse charity box, which gives you a little song when you push money ( rolled-up note is the best! ) through the round entrance.

ミラノ在住の菰田和世氏を中心に企画され、サローネ期の3日間で7,803ユーロの義援金を日本に送ったこの募金箱デザインの展示会が、イタリアでの7月の巡回展を経て、アート・デザイン誌『No Mad』の招待によりジュネーブので開催されます。この展示会には58人のデザイナーが参加し「未曾有の事態にデザインは何が出来るか?」という問いへのひとつの回答を示しました。



場所: Intercloisons ショールーム/19 rue de l'Arquebuse, Geneva
