Tribute to Off White---Virgil Abloh | Waiting For Ideas

[Handmade, 'Fake Industrial Belt' Low Table]

 

Fast Fashion is not the only killing industry. Counterfeits have flooded the online market these last years.

Following our first drop ‘F*** Fast Fashion’, we have been working on a tribute project. We pay tribute to the iconic Industrial Belt made by Off White///Virgil Abloh. Influenced by modern cities, this low table is made of steel and concrete. We sealed that fake belt into epoxy as a reflexion of an era that is now ended.

Entirely handmade in our creative studio, we focused on industrial materials that reflect what Virgil Abloh got most of his inspiration from: structural engineering and cities.

Through this project, we wish to highlight how easily counterfeits can destroy designers’ creation. Bought on ebay, within 5 minutes for $9,77 (including shipping cost from China/Hong Kong/Taiwan), it is unfortunate how easily anyone can have access to fakes. We believe in what makes a product a beautiful artifact: design, quality and rarity.
