Architecture for Humanity (AFH) and Coalesse are working together to raise funds and awareness for a worthy cause. In line with “Sit Down for a Worthy Cause,” Coalesse will host its first “Inspiration” event on May 27 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Coalesse San Francisco Design Center, where it will present AFH with a check for $5,900, the total funds raised to date via the promotion.
Additionally, Cameron Sinclair, co-founder of AFH, will speak at the event about the organization’s current design efforts in Haiti. A select group of 40 local architects and designers will attend, as well as local media.
“Sit Down for a Worthy Cause,” launched earlier this year by Coalesse, invited A&D professionals to help raise money for AFH by visiting a Coalesse or Steelcase showroom, as well as participating A&D firms, in the U.S. and Canada and taking a seat in an X-stack Chair. Coalesse donated $1 to AFH for each person that participated during the six-week promotion. The sitters were also entered into a drawing to win two Emu Heaven Lounge Chairs. Winners of the giveaway will be selected and notified on May 17.
