One project has had our eyes glued to the screen since May is SOFB BOY by Taku Obata powered by Unbox Industries! SOFB BOY BBOY by the one and only Taku Obata vinyl toy has a release date! From wood to vinyl. Powered by Unbox Industries the project has now been fully approved. We are glad Unbox are making this reality as we’ve been fans of Taku Obata art and obviously this version will be a more affordable way of owning Taku Obata art. As Kano puts it putting “Make Vinyl Urban Again” Ha.

SOFB BOY is a soft vinyl interpretation of an original wooden sculpture by Obata that was digitally scanned for a “Virtual” museum project with ANA in 2016.

Unbox was allowed to use the data to produce an exact soft vinyl interpretation of the sculpture that translates the craftmanship of Obata’s original into a new exciting form that allows poseability and dynamism in the hands of the owner.
