Ralston & Bau , a very progressive design studio [based in Norway], recently hosted a ‘Redesign Summer Camp’. Using inspiring objects of FRETEX [Salvation Army] and coached by a professional design team from Ralston & Bau, participants learned skills, during the 4 day workshop, to re-design old objects to create new designs. The result is a unique collection of lights, candleholders and cake plates to name a few, all for sale in the Transplant shop. 

I love this idea. A design firm engaging with the community in new ways.
