Cheap & cheerful

DIY street stall made from an off the shelf ladder
Creating a street stall for a one day event to sell hand made scarves from Bangladesh is not my usual design brief, especially if the budget had to be kept at an absolute minimum. But there is always a way, even if it means going to the DIY shop..

Scarves designed by Luxembourgish designer Anne-Marie Herckes with the assistance of the Vocational Training and Employment Generation Project of the NGO ‘Friendship’.

A friend of mine has sent me the link to this very poetic and wonderful short film by director Ramin Bahrani and narrated by Werner Herzog about the tormented life of a plastic bag.
Take 15 minutes off work and watch it: http://www.futurestates.tv/episodes/plastic-bag
