The designer Adrien Rovero has designed ‘Rock’ for Mountain Climbers. He reinterpretates the transformation of the existing ski gondola into a rocking chair for the garden. The project Mountain Climbers aims to combine recycling and sustainability to benefit a charitable organisation. They revisit a Swiss icon, by salvaging 40 dismantled ski gondolas and have them transformed by 40 artists, architects and designers. Once transformed, the gondolas will be exhibited around Switzerland then sold at auction. The proceeds of this auction will be donated to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Switzerland who grants the most heartfelt wishes of ill children throughout Switzerland. The project will run over three years.
