tokidoki x Peggy Guggenheim Collection

Monday, September 9, 2013

Guggenheim is more than simply a name in the art world, it is a worldwide brand synonymous with the collection, preservation and research of modern and contemporary art. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, located in her former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice showcases her personal collection of masterpieces.

tokidoki is thrilled to announce that for the very first time in history The Peggy Guggenheim Collection chose tokidoki to create a character for them. Based on Peggy Guggenheim’s love for Lhasa Apsos, she raised fourteen of them in Venice – we would like introduce you to CAPPUCCINO.

Only 200 total pieces of this limited edition statuette will be available for sale at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection Store and beginning in late September, at tokidoki’s retail stores.

You will even have an opportunity to wear Cappuccino, as he will be showcased on a limited edition t-shirt!

To celebrate the release of Cappuccino, tokidoki will host an event in Venice at The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, where in addition to having a virtually Lhasa Apso sized statute of Cappuccino, event goers will be the first to see The Hidden World of Cappuccino, a short film animation created by Simone Legno.

While in Venice, tokidoki is honored to announce that Simone Legno will be holding a lecture for design professionals at the Institute of European Design, Venezia.
