It’s HERE! Well, kinda…. “Nigo Had It Junior” OG colourway from FLABSLAB. Tomorrow will see the launch (not a pre-order so you don’t have to wait months) of the Junior version all shrunken down to a smaller version ideally to save some display space (possibly bank account digits too) Teased back in November 2017 they have landed at FLABSLAB HQ and ready for you tomorrow. Given the past editions which were a display hungry with the size of the
Bench and figure (15” width x 6.5” depth x 6.5” height) it was only right to have a mini version so everyone can enjoy this beauty.

Heres a little background story on the inspiration behind this piece.
“The actual piece shown in the Sotheby’s catalog was Lot 22 in the NIGO Only Lives Twice auction in Oct 2014. We saw this as the example of the Nigo’s brilliance. Of being able to put things together and creating something new. The Astroboy without the Jean Prouve Marcoule bench would just have been Astroboy. Putting the 2 together as 1 piece gave it a new meaning. The piece went for HKD 1.3mil or about USD 165,000.”
“We figured that since we’ll never be able to own the original, we might as well make a smaller version to make a statement about what the man used to have but had to sell almost everything he owned. So here we go, presenting “Nigo Had It”
