Art Chairs for Charity

IKEA stephan chair hack

I recently found out about a really neat project by IKEA and OCRI: “Pull Up a Chair for Breakfast” Fundraiser Auction. The goal is to improve the ability of children in-need to learn by providing a nutritious breakfast in a safe, supervised environment. According to OCRI, approximately 10,000 children in 145 schools in the city begin each school day with a nutritious meal provided by the School Breakfast Program. The program provides funding for equipment, program monitors and food.

In order to raise money, several IKEA Stephan chairs have been hacked by various people and are currently up for auction until Sunday March 7th. The modified chairs (shown below) are also on display at the entrance of the IKEA Ottawa store until March 7th.

There are some really original ideas but personally the top 3 in terms of originality has to be:

1. Stefan the Man by Pierre I. Brunet, local artist
2. Ode to Mondrian by Charlotte P, Fatima S, Melissa B. and Julia T (students)
3. Calamari by Marlaina D & Kennedy B. (students)

  1. That's awesome! I had no idea this was going on. What a great idea. I hope the fundraiser does well, and that it happens again next year.

    Thanks for sharing this!
