Designjunction showcases the very best in furniture, lighting and product design from around the world. This year they are very proud to announce Teddy's Wish as their official chosen charity for 2014. Teddy's Wish raises funds to aid research into the causes behind SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), neonatal death and stillbirth and support grieving families. In the UK, more than 300 babies die suddenly and unexpectedly every year without reason. In all cases the loss is sudden, without warning and often without explanation.
The charity launched on 1st August 2014 and has raised £50,000 through generous donations here
This year to raise as much money as possible for such a worthy cause. Nineteen leading designers have been invited to design and to customise the iconic Anglepoise® Type75™ Mini desk lamp and Stacking chair, from Ercol’s Originals collection.
The wonderfully designed pieces will be available to purchase online during a silent auction at thedesignjunction.co.uk/charity from 12 September until midday on Sunday 28 September 2014. Prices start from £150 for the lamp and £350 for the chair.
