Fabergé Big Egg Hunt Features Designs by Leading Architects

Dichotomy / Zaha Hadid - Courtesy of The Big Egg Hunt Co

‘The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt’, launched on the 21st of February, has provided London, with 209 giant and stunningly crafted Easter eggs, designed by artists, architects, jewelers and designers.  The four presented here were designed by architects Zaha Hadid, Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, Fourfoursixsix and interior design firm Candy & Candy.  The designs are unique, structural and conceptual.  Thirty-one among the 200 will be chosen for a live auction on March 20th.  The rest can be bid on on-line. The proceeds from the auction will go towards the £2million target for Action for Children, a charity for vulnerable and neglected children, young people and families, and Elephant Family, a charity for the endangered Asian elephant.  This Easter egg hunt invites the whole public to participate in finding these eggs throughout the city; the scale of this event is set to break Guinness World Records for the most participants in an Easter egg hunt.

Read on to see the designs after the break.
