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 craftsmanship of Obata’s original into a new exciting form that allows the ability to pose and dynamism in the hands of the owner.
