Through 100 Hammers, participants have one month to complete a project with one of the second-hand hammers, before it is shipped back to the 100 Hammers library to continue its life of benevolent creation. Designers taking part in the initiative are also asked to pass on the  proceeds of any sales they make to local art and design projects.
