Design for Life is a charity sale, set up by Sam Baron and The Art Design Lab, for the benefit of the Fondation de l’Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris, and more specifically of the AP-HP Sorbonne University Hospital-University Group, with for the purpose of helping nursing staff and researchers to cope with the urgency of the current situation.

We mobilized the community of designers who offered drawing (s), sometimes accompanied by a prototype or an object, all for sale on the Design for Life page, from April 10 to May 31, 2020.

Discover the talent of French and international designers, recognized or beginners, by acting together for an essential cause. Design x Life values ​​the creativity of these designers and their know-how during this secret, moving and effervescent phase that characterizes any creative process, before being embodied in the materiality of an object. The designers of objects or furniture, fashion-designers, architects, landscapers, scenographers … have selected the most emblematic and significant drawings and preparatory works to offer them to amateurs and collectors in order to help nursing staff and researchers.

Each piece is unique and comes with a certificate of authenticity and an invoice.

Your purchases will be sent to you by the designers as soon as the confinement is over and 100% of the proceeds from this sale (excluding bank charges) will be donated to the Fondation de l’Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris.

We are counting on your generosity but also on your ability to support this action and to invite your friends to do the same. At the same time, make a donation to the Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris Covid 19 emergency fund.

Take care of yourself.
