MAN-E-NEWS// (UPDATED) Bonjour Bots teaser from Lunabee x Cris Rose…

It looks like we wont be waiting long for the next awesome Lunabee x Cris Rose collaboration, with the first image for the provisionally named “Bonjour Bots” surfacing on the internet today.

Backstory//

“Not long after the phone, television and internet services merged, a single Holographic system, the Trimensional Reception, Interaction and Broadcast Endevour became the universal method of communication. Whether it was to chat with your Gran or watch the latest sports event on the other side of the world, Trimensional was the only way to do it. Being such a mouthful, most referred to it as TRIBE and most devices, as Trimensional Viewers, or TVs for short.

The Personal Trimensional Viewer was an extension of TRIBE, a small encapsulated unit that would sit on your desk and show you a live, photo realistic, 3D Hologram of a chosen loved one, 24 hours a day. It didn’t matter where they were or what they were doing, they’d be doing it in the little glass dome next to your mug of coffee.

The concept was purely innocent and technically perfect… but it soon became apparent that there was a serious social flaw in it – namely every time your mother went to the toilet or had a shower… It was a disaster. One of the fastest selling products in history became one of the fastest failures – no one wanted them and they were returned in their tens of thousands.”

Personal Trimentional Viewer (ThreeA Bertie one-offs)

Coinciding with the release of the Turquiose Rotund Mk2’s, Cris Rose will also be dropping two one-off Personal Trimentoinal Viewer custom Berties! Priced at $90 each, the run has been limited to just two one-off designs that will never be repeated again. Expect these in the store alongside the Turquiose Rotund Mk2’s at 6pm (London time) tonight…


MAN-E-NEWS// Trimentional Viewer teasers from Cris Rose…

Keep an eye on your robot with your personal Trimentional Viewer”

Anyone following the newly opened Cris Rose Instagram account will have noticed several interesting photos from his latest project, the Trimensional Viewers! Little is known about the project yet, but as you can garner from the above shots, the release is set to feature a scaled down version of Cris’ popular Sprog bots (around 2/3 the size), housed in a beautiful clear dome and suitably weathered base. No news as of yet with regards to pricing or edition size, but expect these wonderful resin creations to hit the Cris Rose store at some point this week.

Alongside the Trimensional teasers, Cris has also revealed several tentative images under the title “Dreams in Focus”. Combining his passion for both photography and customisation, it appears that he is working on a custom built vintage camera! Clearly displaying the distinctive Cris Rose crown and the number 12 in roman numerals, we can but wonder what this awesome project will entail. Stay tuned for more news on both the Trimensional Viewers and “Dreams in Focus” as soon as it hits…
