Hats off to Designer Hugo Thompson
Feelance Designer Hugo Thompson is one of 30 talented artists and designers exhibiting at Design Week 2011. His speciality is Interiors and Furniture though his love of music is clear for all to see with his clever use of old piano keys bringing new life and meaning to the long since silent keys. From inspiring piano themed benches, piano key record holders, piano key lampshades and even a piano key hat stand which Hugo very generously put up for raffle to benefit the Musical Youth Foundation.
The raffle generated €324. for the charity which plans to invest the money in instruments for its latest after school music programme.
