Pharrell Williams – “Velo” Bike for Domeau & Pérès

Creative artist extraordinaire Pharrell Williams brings you one of the freshest, cleanest, and most limited bikes you will ever have the chance of owning.  He teams up with Domeau & Pérès, who produced his first design work, the “Perspective Chairs”, and Brooklyn Machine Works, who produced the frame and fork (made out of 4130 chromemoly seamless airplane grade steel tubing).  It takes over 100 man hours to upholster the bike in water buffalo leather and all the stitching work is done by hand. There will […]

Preview: Basel Week Miami ’10 – Friends With You

It just wouldn’t be Art Basel Miami week without fantastical Floridians Friends With You. This year, the energetic and imaginative duo of Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval will be presenting Rainbow City, a large-scale outdoor installation that in their words addresses “the potency of interaction, ritual, and play.” Constructed in Miami’s Design District, the site-specific collection of 40 simple air-filled structures—some up to 40 feet high—are meant to embrace and tower over guests, creating a feeling of reverence. And to add to the excitement, Pharrell […]

Openings: Basel Week Miami ’09 – Emmanuel Perrotin Private View and Dinner

Last night, the first members of the AM crew flew into Miami for our coverage for Art Basel Week and what greeted us was the opening bash at Emmanuel Perrotin. The night’s exclusive events included cocktails, a fabulously catered dinner, an outdoor dance floor where the guests got down for the festivities. Of course the art was the draw as the gallery space opened a new series of shows including the unveiling of the new “tank chairs” from Pharrell Williams, as well as solo shows from Matthew Day Jackson and […]

Video: Interview – Pharrell Williams / Murakami / The Simple Things – Basel Week Switzerland

Vernissage TV caught up with Pharrell Williams and interviewed him about the collaboration piece he did with Takashi Murakami and Jacob the Jeweler at Art Basel (Switzerland). Gems of this interview include where he says “bling, I do not wear,” how he was reluctant to call himself an artist, and his love for cupcakes (really, are they THAT good?).  Not sure we would have chosen the same “…simple things” he did, but we loved the sculpture. Discuss Murakami here.

Murakami x Pharrell x Jacob the Jeweler @ Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin – Basel Week Switzerland

Last time we were with Pharrell & Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, it was at Art Basel Miami. Over a half year later, they reveal this secret project at Art Basel Switzerland. Check this amazing collaboration between Takashi Murakami, Pharrell Williams and Jacob & Co – a mind blowing sculpture entitled “The Simple Things.” Think Superflat meets hip hop and Metroid. The sculpture is based on Murakami’s signature “DOB” character and features an onyx fiberglass husk with a pearlescent glow to compliment the vibrant rainbow colors which […]
