KAWS has announced that next week he’ll be unveiling three new versions of his noted Companion figure as a collaborative effort with artist Robert Lazzarini. The three Companion figures are consistent with KAWS styling and manufacturing except for one marked difference — they each take on a unique form of deformation. Lazzarini’s influence is clear in the Companions which work to distort perspectives, and appear to be almost melted into their new stances. Special molds were used to achieve the deformed look which Lazzarini has championed, and can be seen further in his Weapons Series. Keep your eyes peeled for a release at OriginalFake in Aoyama next week, and a drop at kawsone.com in January.
