BT Art Box – Celebrating a British Design Icon

Posted filed underCharity, Design, England.


“Experts call it the K6. We call it a red phone box. The good old British phone box was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to commemorate King George V’s Silver Jubilee.

This year we’ve got a Diamond Jubilee and London 2012 to look forward to, so we decided we needed to do something to celebrate,” writes btartboxes.com.

“That something turned into BT ArtBox.

It’s a campaign that thrives on England’s artistic talent. Across London’s streets you’ll find replicas of the Gilbert Scott phone box, transformed by the imaginations of some of our very best creative minds.

Then later on we’ll be auctioning all the boxes off to raise money for ChildLine’s 25th anniversary.
