2012 (June/July) BT Art Box (Big Ben) – 25th Anniversary Childline www.btartboxes.com
A British design classic, made over by top creative talent and given to London’s streets this summer. BT ArtBox is a celebration of all that is great about Britain. Take the world renowned Gilbert Scott Kiosk: a symbol of bold and democratic design. Give it to top artists, fashion and graphic designers. Have them give it a make over. Then bring it to London in the summer of the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games.
Combining two quintessentially British icons - The Telephone box and Ben Ben became the Bog Ben BT Artbox. The clocks were set to 8 oclock and 11 minutes past 11. 08001111 The phone number for ChildLine.
