Replica telephone boxes revamped to raise money for charity.

The ArtBox project was commissioned by British Telecom to invite artists and designers to rethink the iconic British telephone box. Most of the artists stripped away the red color, and decorated the replica fiber-glass phonebooths with leopard prints, stencil art, and floral designs. Some of the booths were converted to have an entirely different purpose, such as a sofa couch, and a mini garden.

The project was part of BT’s 25th anniversary of ChildLine, a not-for-profit service that offers advice for young people over the phone. The redesigned phonebooths will be auctioned at a gala to raise money for the charity.
