Elephants adopted by
Techno Design IP

The purpose of the Elephant Parade is the conservation of the Asian elephant. Techno Design IP has therefore adopted 3 life-size elephant statues to support the Asian elephant. These, and hundreds of other elephants statues, will be shown from September 5th to October 31st of 2009 in the center of Amsterdam during a event called 'Elephant Parade'.

The Elephant Parade is an outdoor exhibition of artistic hand-painted elephants. The hundred life-size elephants, who can be admired in and around the center of Amsterdam, will be painted by famous Dutch artists and professionals artists from abroad. All statues will be sold at the end of the exhibition under the direction of the famous auction house Christie's. The revenue from this auction will benefit the Elephant Family organization, this is the largest elephant charity organization in the world.

The three adopted elephant statues by Techno Design IP are named:

  • 'Banger Hart' hand painted by Rob de Nijs;
  • 'Red, Yellow and Blue' hand painted by Erik van der Hoff
  • 'Playground' hand painted by the Thai artist Narin Kantawong.

All three statues are located on different locations in the city center of Amsterdam. So can ‘Banger Hart’ be found at the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal, ‘Red, Yellow and Blue’ at the Amstel and ‘Playground’ near the Beursplein.

You can support the Asian Elephants as well!

Besides the auction and sponsorships, Techno Design IP and the Elephant parade have set-up a SMS donation program to raise money for the Asian elephants. Participation to this program is very simple and can be done by sending a SMS message with the code on the life-size elephants on the parade. The SMS donations will be handled by the payment platform MobileMoney, a business unit of Techno Design IP.

To show our appreciation several exclusively hand-painted elephants will be raffled amongst the participants.

So set your agenda and come to Amsterdam during the 5th of September and the 31st of October!
