RICK OWENS ROBOTICS
Bulgarian artist Simeon Georgiev unveils his latest installment of robotics exclusively for Highsnobiety, this time around featuring influential designer Rick Owens. Challenged with recreating the fashion designer’s flowing hair and trim physique, Georgiev outfitted the monochromatic droid with cables for hair and an asymmetric chain running through the torso. The robot’s footwear, meanwhile, takes the form of a futuristic version of the Paris-based designer’s famed Ramones silhouette.
Just like his last projects, the concept questions the role of designers and creativity in an increasingly digital world, as well as tastefully imagining what the robots of the wealthy may look like in the not-too-distant future.
