Tomodachi by Daisuke Sakaguchi

Do you remember when I was hit with egg-hunting fever and I ran all over London taking photos of artistically designed eggs? Well, at that time I came across a Japanese artist called Daisuke Sakaguchi, who designed a gorgeous egg called “Mirai” (meaning “future”).

Now the egg fever has passed, but I’ve been hit with a new obsession – BT ArtBoxes! Much like The Big Egg Hunt, there are 80-odd decorated London phoneboxes scattered around town… and Daisuke Sakaguchi is back!

This time, Daisuke has designed a K6 telephone box called “Tomodachi”, which means “friend”. Isn’t it beautiful?

This BT ArtBox can be found on Newport Place in Chinatown, London. It will only be there until mid-July though! For more information about Daisuke Sakaguchi, please visit his website.

All of the BT Artboxes will be auctioned to raise money for ChildLine, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. For more information, please visit the BT ArtBox website.
