Design that makes me smile: Cardboard duvet

In these post I always show a design piece that isn't just beautiful but funny too. But the next item is also linked with a very serious subject.

This Cardboard duvet features a photo of a cardboard box. The idea is that you 'sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless young person doesn’t have to'.

Erik van Loo and Peggy van Neer, who started Le-Clochard, give most of the proceeds on the sale of the duvet to SZN, a foundation for homeless youngsters in the Netherlands. The income is used to fund housing projects which prioritise supporting young people in finding work or continuing their education.

At this time of the year, I sometimes have trouble getting warm indoors, I can't imagine what it must be like sleeping outdoors! This is a lovely way of giving to charity...
