Cecilia Glik, gallery owner and charity worker based in Buenos Aires, Argentina has the rights to manufacture the pallet chair in a workshop in Lugano for the charity Amistad O Nada. Cecilia has taught unemployed people in the devastated slum in Lugano, one of the poorest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires how to make the pallet chair in their cooperative using locally-sourced pallets. The furniture is then sold through local networks or globally through the web, creating employment, income – and affordable, desirable furniture.

 

Gavin Turk,  Rachel Whiteread and Cornelia Parker each costumised a pallet chair in support of the charity Amistad o Nada.
