Wed, 30 Apr 2014 09:28:19
As part of the Star Wars Legion exhibition, leading lifestyle brand NEFF has recharged the "Stormtrooper" helmet like never before. Now, we all know how cool and ominous the O.G. white helmet is, but a myriad of artists—and celebrity Star Wars freaks—chosen by Lucasfilm and NEFF have given this "dome" new life like never before.
You'll be able to experience these up close and personal at the Robert Vargas Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles Friday May 2 4pm-8pm, Saturday May 3 2pm-6pm, and Sunday May 4 12pm-4pm—"May the 4th be with you", get it?!
As if the helmet itself couldn't get any more awesome, NEFF has added splashes of color that make some of the pieces utterly psychedelic and purely entrancing. This staple of science fiction and pop culture lore becomes a bona fide work of art within the hands of this respective talent. There's even a helmet that looks like an ice cream cone! Talk about using the force…
Especially with the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII being announced this week, this is the perfect time to celebrate all things from A Galaxy Far Far Away. Moreover, this monumental moment brings together one of the coolest lifestyle chic brands and a film titan like never before.
In other words, be there or you deserve to face my lightsaber!
