Design journalist and author Max Fraser has invited more than 150 established and emerging designers to create a one-off artwork that expresses the 'Joy of Living', using just three pieces of differently coloured A4 paper. These exhibits will be available to view at One Poultry in the City of London between Tuesday 5 September and Sunday 10 September.

All artwork can be viewed and bid for here until 10 September

Maggie's aims to be there for anyone living with cancer. As Maggie herself said:

Above all what matters is not to lose the joy of living in the fear of dying.

All proceeds from this project will go towards supporting our network of Centres, so more people with cancer can find the support they need.

Artworks have been generously donated by a range of creative talent, including designers Jasper Morrison, Fredrikson Stallard, Barber & Osgerby, Tom Dixon, Ross Lovegrove, Eley Kishimoto and Ilse Crawford; architects Amanda Levete, Ivan Harbour and Steven Holl; architectural designer John Pawson; jewellery designers Hannah Martin and Jade Jagger; and artists Richard Woods and Rolf Sachs. Each piece will be signed but displayed anonymously.





Date: Tuesday 5 September - Sunday 10 September

Time: 10am – 6pm

Address: One Poultry, London, EC2R 8EJ (next to Bank tube station)
