Trompe l'oeil riveted metal plating defines the Special Edition 400% Steampunk BE@RBRICK ROYAL SELANGOR, evoking the guttural roar of a coal-fired furnace, the hiss of steam, and all the romance of 19th century engineering. Cast in pewter and given a graphite-treated bronze finish to simulate weathered iron, selective missing panels expose the automaton’s inner workings of pewter gauges and conduits.
A cartoon-like bear in anthropomorphic form, MEDICOM TOY’s BE@RBRICK debuted in Tokyo in 2001. In the intervening years, the designer toy has acquired international cult status, in no small part due to its subsequent release in a range of materials, sizes and themes, and its collaborations with a slew of art, design & fashion heavyweights.
