Last night, Cult launched The Chairity Project, Reinventing Design Icons. Inviting 14 Australasian creative icons to reinterpret, reinvent and make their mark on a design classic – the ‘CH33’ chair by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Sons, the evening was a creative affair.

The Reinventing Icons Project brings together charity, creativity, iconic Danish Design and reaffirms Australia and New Zealand as influential design destinations.
Each chair will be auctioned off via an online auction with all proceeds going to each designer’s chosen charity. Cult are thrilled to be facilitating this unique event and are excited to announce the creatives on-board and their chosen charities.
