‘Be nice to a girl, Buy her a ring’ by ted noten

(From Designboom.com)

This Project seems to me such a nice project which implies social context – transform the former prostitutes’ cribs to a jewellery  workshop – by installing ‘a ring vending machine at the entrance, and it makes people happy by spending just a small amount of money while delivering a strong social message.

at oudekerksplein 4,  atelier ted noten is participating in red light design – a cooperation between droog design, the city of amsterdam and jewellery designers in order to transform the former prostitutes’ cribs into jewellery workshops.
atelier ted noten has installed a snack machine with red rings in which you can ‘be nice to a girl and buy her a ring!’
