Futura is set to reintroduce his product brand Futura Labs after an eight-year hiatus. Dover Street Market will be the exclusive retailer for the collection, coinciding with the artist’s landmark exhibition in Singapore.
Futura’s Southeast Asian debut is a 150-page exhibition catalogue showcased in a custom-designed military ammo box, alongside an accompanying heavyweight commemorative canvas portage. The box reverts back to the 63-year-old creative’s history with the US Navy, specifically his first visit to Singapore in 1974 as a member of the military.
The Futura Labs collection will first be available at Dover Street Market Singapore on May 31, followed by launches at the retailer’s Beijing, London, Los Angeles, New York, and Tokyo locations in July. Additionally, Dover Street Market Singapore will be showcasing a specially commissioned painting by Futura in-store from May 31 to June 9, as the canvas will be available for purchase. Futura himself will also be in attendance at the store on June 2 at 5:30 p.m. for a 30 minute meet-and-greet. While there he will sign The Culture Story’s custom-designed Collector’s Box Set, which will be available while supplies last.
