Most schools in rural India lack basic facilities like desks. Students have to sit on the floor with their backs hunched for hours. Aarambh, an NGO that works with children, worked with agency DDB Mudra Group Ahmedabad to create a desk that doubles as a school bag made from discarded cartons. Help Desk plays an important role in improving the quality of education in rural India, and has just been awarded a D&AD White Pencil 2014.

Humo by Studio Nocc for Designer Box N°14

Humo is an atypical object imagined by Studio Nocc - the creative power duo of Juan Pablo Naranjo and Jean Christophe Orthlieb. For Designer Box, they explored humour within this object whose essence is to play with fire!

Censer or ashtray, Humo holds in the smoke, transforming a volatile matter into complementary poetry to the object.

Turning Bridge-Building Sideways

In 1978, SOM architect Myron Goldsmith and engineer T.Y. Lin created a remarkable structure to span the challenging middle fork of California’s American River. Ruck-A-Chucky Bridge elegantly solves the problem of building a stable, economical structure across a wide, steep gorge by entirely rethinking the principles of bridge-building. A “hanging arc,” the bridge was to be suspended by 80 high-strength cables and balanced by tensile forces. Though unbuilt, Ruck-A-Chucky Bridge stands as a masterwork of innovative design and structural economy to this day. Learn more
