Kaijin x Noriya Takeyama Prototype


For some time now, Japanese designer Kaijin’s blog has been filled with process pics of work on a super-detailed piece that is at once creature and house.  Turns out that it’s a collab between Kaijin and Japanese illustrator Noriya Takeyama.  Takeyama is quite prolific and has created numerous characters/properties including David Mushroom, Poolys, and more.   The completed prototype is being shown at Takeyama’s Dream House exhibition at the Junie Moon space in Tokyo.

What’s really interesting of course is that this appears to be slated for production as vinyl.  I say appears as we’re relying on machine translation for now.  This piece is pretty impressive — whimsical and rippling with detail not normally seen in vinyl.  More as we get it.
