Flabslab wants you to know that “Nigo Had It”… Now in Mono!

That's right, A Bathing Ape founder and former owner Nigo had it. What is it, exactly? Well, Nigo has had a lot of things — including a completed carded collection of Star Wars figures — but this specific 'it' would be the inspiration to take two disparate items and place them together, namely a sleeping Astroboy figure that he lay upon a Jean Prouve Marcoule bench. Spotted during Nigo's Only Lives Twice auction at Sotheby's, under catalog Lot 22, FLABSLAB used this idea as the basis for their now sold out smaller piece. Titled “Nigo Had It,” this work returns in a 2nd edition, which is a mono colorway! Cast in resin, this 6½-inch tall, 20-inch wide, and 6½-inch deep piece comes in a massive wooden box for protection. Limited to an edition of 43 pieces (plus 4 artist proofs), it will be available on January 30th, 2016 at 7am Pacific time in FLABSLAB’s online shop for $1300 apiece.
