A Brief History of BAPE x Modernica
Focused on world-class fiberglass molding, woodworking, and upholstery, Modernica has a been a stalwart in the modern furniture industry for more than 25 years. Since their inception, Modernica has never hesitated to push the envelope of accepted design, pulling inspiration from traditional designers and new influences alike. In their first collaboration with streetwear powerhouse BAPE in 2009, they released an extremely limited set of 3 Eames Side Chairs (it was rumored that only 100 chairs were produced in each color). The chairs come with a solid colored seat, and BAPE’s iconic tonal camo pattern on the back. Not to be confused with the 2012 or 2017 versions, our prize pack includes the original 2009 green colorway which led the way for future collaborations with both BAPE & other streetwear brands. Here is a look at Modernica’s BAPE collaborations through the years:
Since the original BAPE collection dropped in 2009, Modernica has tapped a handful of other streetwear brands to produce branded Eames Chairs. The long list includes Undefeated, Collette, Anti Social Social Club, and The Hundreds, furthering the reach of their most iconic piece of furniture.
While the classic Eames chair is Modernica’s most recognizable piece of furniture, the BAPE x Modernica Coffee Table that released in 2012 is arguably the most unique and iconic item the two have ever produced. The table was release in extremely limited quantities and was made available via pre-orders only. Nigo’s affinity for mid-century modern furniture was on full display, with the table’s custom ape-head design and detachable metal legs.
To top off the holy grail of living room furniture, we’re including a BAPE x Rizzoli Hardcover Book in our prize pack. The book was published in 2008, and features a variety of historical interviews and photos detailing the brand’s history up until that point. The release of the book which is commonly referred to as the “BAPE Bible” paved the way for future Rizzoli books focusing on streetwear, street art, and various important figures in the industry.
To celebrate the kickoff of StockX Select & BAPE’s 25th Anniversary, we are launching a complete back catalog of BAPE’s e-Mook catalogs. This catalogs feature rarely seen images and product shots from 2005 to present. Click here to view them now.
