Project H‘s Design Revolution Road Show Airstream trailer is now up for auction on eBay! The shiny silver rig just finished its 9,500-mile, 36-city trek across the country promoting humanitarian product design with an exhibition, lecture series, and workshops, and now it will go to the highest bidder so that its legacy can live on. For Airstream aficionados and design fans alike, the 1972, 27-foot-long trailer will be sold including its bold pink stripe AND 30 of the 40 examples of “products that empower people” that were featured in the exhibition (including a HomeHero fire extinguisher, GreenFire rocket stove, and more!). The interior has been totally refurbished to include an open plan (which Project H used as exhibition space) and bedroom in the back. Bidding ends June 11th, 8am PDT. Delivery available within the continental US.
Project H founder Emily Pilloton says, “The road show was quite an adventure. We want the spirit of it and its content to live on!” While on the road, Emily and her partner Matt Miller (who is the owner of the Airstream) visited 36 cities, design schools, and high schools, and ended the adventure at ICFF in New York earlier this month. Over the course of 75 days, 25,000 people set foot in the trailer to experience the exhibition of humanitarian product design. They even had celebrity cameos from David Byrne, Third Eye Blind frontman Stephen Jenkins, and design heroes like architect Jeanne Gang, Martin Fisher, and more!
From the Design Revolution Road Show website: “The programming will bring the evidence of and tools for design for social impact to the doorsteps of students, with the ultimate goal of enabling and empowering the next generation of creative problem-solvers to apply their skills to the world’s most pressing problems and improve life on a global scale.”
