JLab Audio partnered with TEKSTartist this month to release a limited edition of their Bambora over-ear headphones! The artwork comes from the anonymous artist whose 2012 project is intriguing to say the least. He calls it a “Daily Art Piece” project, but there is a twist: each day, the price of the new artwork goes up by $1! Thankfully the TEKST Bambora won’t hurt your wallet too much: it is currently on sale for $70 — the same price as the other Bamboras.
As can be surmised from his name (and the photo above if you look close), all of TEKSTartist’s work is text-based. There are some really beautiful pieces up on the TEKSTartist website so I highly recommend checking it out if you are interested in cool artwork!
“For this design, TEKST used the left ear cup to illustrate the text: ‘The rhythm of the waves is the soul of the sea’ while the right earcup pays tribute to the music, surf, and several of southern California’s most iconic towns like Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, and La Jolla.”
The video below takes a look at some of the design process, in fast forward:
The TEKST edition Bambora ships late November and is currently up for pre-order on the JLab Audio website.
