Read more ...

A herd of customised elephants have been painted, patterned, and accessorised by 21 world-renowned designers and architects who have added their personal touch to the iconic Eames Elephants – kindly donated by Vitra. The unique designs will appear as an installation at designjunction2015 entitled A Child’s Dream – to raise funds and awareness for Teddy’s Wish charity.

Participating designers include: Matthew Hilton, Aukett Swanke, Lee Broom, CKR, Fredrikson Stallard, Industrial Facility, Sir Kenneth Grange, Gensler, Eley Kishimoto, André Klauser, Max Lamb, Philippe Malouin, Michael Marriott, Kit Miles, Neri&Hu, Patternity, Russell Pinch, Raw Edges, Zandra Rhodes and Terence Woodgate.

Why this matters

In the UK, more than 300 babies die suddenly and unexpectedly every year. The UK has one of the highest rates of unexplained infant mortality in the developed western world. We can change this.

Teddy’s Wish was set up in August 2014 to honour the memory of Edward Louis Reid, who died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrom four months earlier. Funds raised support potentially life-saving research into SIDS, Stillborn and Neonatal Death Syndrome and helps provide support services for grieving families.


Auction closes on Sunday 4th October at midday.


They say ‘elephants never forget’. Nor do bereaved parents.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
