The Prize

Take home the artwork "Diesel Commission" by the artist Derick Melander.

"Diesel Commission" is a cube made up of carefully folded second-hand clothing. as you walk round the piece the colors go from dark to light and back again, with the most vivid colors placed at the centre of the vertical side. 

This work was created by Derick Melander, as part of a social initiative carried out by Diesel France and linked to the Diesel FW17 ‘Go With The Flaw’ campaign.

In exchange for an item of clothing bought in a moment of binge-shopping, Diesel offered a discount on purchases made in the Paris store. The clothing collected was transformed into this work of art that was displayed at the Carreau Du Temple during the Young International Art Fair and later donated to the Only The Brave Foundation.
