Black Viewmaster + Arkitip- 02.10.08

arkitip.jpgI’ve wanted a black viewmaster since the “Gifts for your Indie Ninja” list from my ThisNext days, but alas, i’ve been lazy and forgot to buy one… so when i saw that the latest issue of Arkitip, No. 0044 HIGHMATH ~ is a collaboration with one of my favorite Danish collectives, Wood Wood… and comes in a box with “1 Exhibition catalog, 3 image reels, 1 3D viewer”… i grabbed my credit card. How could i give up a chance at a black viewmaster (with white Arkitip, Wood Wood, and Nike branding) as well as fun art? Perhaps we need to get some branded NOTCOT Viewmasters, and every month/week/random whim we can send out a mysterious reel of inspiring imagery?


From the Arkitip Page:

Arkitip No. 0044 HIGHMATH

For the first time ever we handed the design responsibilities for the issue edition to an outside source. That source being the design trio Wood Wood. Our 44th issue edition will also serve as the working catalog for the exhibition.

The Danish design collective Wood Wood was founded in 2002 by Brian SS Jensen, Karl-Oskar Olsen and Magnus Carstensen. They initiated their business as a limited t-shirt label and opened their first small shop in central Copenhagen.

Since then, Wood Wood has spread throughout Europe and beyond with a considered brand approach that includes retail stores, biannual apparel lines for men and women and numerous collaboration projects often incorporating an international network of friends and likeminded creators.

Wood Wood embodies that laid back blend of underground and high-end way of thinking, hoping to surprise across the board with a distinct selection of styles. Over the last few years Wood Wood’s illustrious graphic profile has established the design trio as a driving force on the European street couture scene.

Arkitip in conjunction with Wood Wood presents:


Andrew Schoultz, Chris Lindig, Ed Templeton, Evan Hecox, Cody Hudson, CR Stecyk III, Eric Elms, Gary Benzel, Geoff McFetridge, Jo Jackson, José Parlá, Josh Petherick, Kaws, Killpixie, Michael Leon, Kevin Lyons, Michael Perry, Parra, Phil Frost, Perks, Peter Beste, Peter Sutherland, Richard Colman, Ryan Waller, Shepard Fairey, Todd St. John & Steven Harrington

3 Notes

I found your webpage by accident last night. WE ARE THE MANUFACTURERS OF THIS VIEW-MASTER STYLE VIEWER AND REEL SET. Please feel free to contact us if you’re interested in your own… or in setting up plans for a monthly reel to be sent out. :)


P.S. The other link mentioned above is to a company who orders their product from us… a middle man, so to speak. We actually are the manufacturers and hold the patent on this process.

Wow, that is pretty sweet!

Now if only we could hook them up with flickr so we could all order custom Viewmaster reels…
