David Weeks Studio Introduces MR B
In celebration of their twentieth anniversary, and two decades of the iconic BIGFOOT™ table, German design studio e15 and David Weeks Studio have created MR B — an all-star addition to Weeks’ wooden toy collection.
With playful features and foldable limbs, this guy can easily bend into cube formation, especially when he needs to maintain a low profile.
A collection of MR Bs will be hand-signed by David and available at the studio on Oct 15th.
MR B for David Weeks Studio
Believed to still be roaming the forests of North America, Bigfoot – aka MR B – makes his big reveal on October 15, 2015 in New York City. This multi-dimensional creature comes with playful features and foldable limbs – all of which will be ready to party the night away with his designer and longtime friend, David Weeks (David Weeks Studio).
Famous for the ingenious creation of Cubebot, David Weeks Studio has conceived another legend-in-a-box! Though he may be easy on the eyes, MR B’s exterior is untreated solid oak, and held together with an elastic textile band, making this guy one tough cookie.
The creation story for MR B goes like this: German design studio e15 is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and two decades of the iconic solid wood table, BIGFOOT™. They came to Weeks with a request for an object out of similar materials inspired by the table; using the same dimensions as the base of BIGFOOT™, our flexible friend was born.
Now, at 15 inches high and fully grown, MR B will be released on October 15th and made available for purchase at David Weeks Studio as well as through an international network of e15 retailers. Stillfried Wein (an e15 retailer located next door to the studio’s Tribeca location) and David Weeks Studio will both host events on the evening of the 15th to celebrate the launch. Come by to meet the wooden man of the hour and pick up your signed version!
New York-based David Weeks Studio is an interdisciplinary design practice that produces nuanced furniture, lighting and sculptural objects as well as collaborating on custom commissions and experimental projects. One part storefront, one part creative lab, the studio’s Tribeca location is supported by their production facility in Brooklyn, where Weeks founded the studio two decades ago.
