London is known for being the capital of all eccentricities. This year, Fabergé is organizing a huge Egg hunting in the streets of London and over 200 eggs will be placed in the city. Everything starts on the 21st of February…. next week! And one of the important players is Spina Design.
So imagine more than 200 eggs disseminated all around London in strategic locations. Members of the public will be able to hunt down the strategically placed, giant eggs, currently being exclusively designed, bejewelled and decorated by some of the world’s leading artists, architects, jewellers and designers including the Bruce Oldfield, Chapman Brothers, Zandra Rhodes, Diane Von Furstenberg, Theo Fennell, Sophie Dahl, Rob Ryan, William Curley, Bompas and Parr, Polly Morgan, Vivienne Westwood and Sir Ridley Scott.
A big auction will be organized in order to raise funds to 2 different charity institutions: the Elephant family which protects asian elephants and their habitat, and Action for children: a british organization for childhood protection.

The hand-crafted eggs, which are destined to become highly collectible works of art, will be available to buy at auction, with proceeds going to Action for Children and Elephant Family.
