Thanks to the joint efforts of the ADI (Association for Industrial Design), the AIRC (Italian Association for Cancer Research) and some of the most important design firms in Italy, the LOVE DESIGN event in support of Italian cancer research is back in its seventh instalment.
The event will take place this year at the prestigious Fabbrica del Vapore in Milan where, for three days from 11th to 13th December, designer products donated by participating companies will be sold to raise money in aid of cancer research.
The initiative, thought up in 2003 by the ADI and the Lombardy branch of the AIRC, has raised over 1.6 million euros to date. In addition to the many donated pieces, the LOVE DESIGN lottery will also be giving away a range of exciting prizes.
There will be 20,000 tickets on sale with the aim of reaching the 50,000 euros raised last time.
FontanaArte will be among the companies taking part in this charity initiative with some of its most select pieces (Yumi by Shigeru Ban, Blom by Andreas Enegsvik, Cheshire by GamFratesi, Bilia by Gio Ponti, Yupik by FUWL, Fontana by Max Ingrand).
A unique occasion to do some good and buy designer pieces!
