The Porsche 911 by Orlinski story
Passionate about sports and cars, the sculptor Richard Orlinski reveals a unique creation inspired by a mythical car: the Porsche 911 by Orlinski.
«I am very honored to have, on the occasion of this 55th anniversary, revisited this exceptional car, the Porsche 911, to make it a unique work, marked by our two DNAs. On one hand, that of Porsche, a world of prestige and excellence, and on the other hand mine, a graphic world with bright colors «.
The Porsche 911 by Orlinski combines the arty codes of the pop and colorful universe of the artist with the power and velocity of each of his works, echoing the values of sport. A Porsche 911 with interior and exterior, completely redesigned by the contemporary artist!
The car, unique model, has the design and faceted appearance that we found on each of the artist’s sculptures. To achieve this result, it took more than 500 hours of hard work to materialize what Orlinski Design teams had imagined. One of the biggest technical challenges was to render the body car fully uniform when touching it, and so despite its eleven layers of paint!
On the inside, the Porsche 911 by ORLINSKI, reuses the famous yellow “Porsche Vitesse” of the body car and reveals, in a very finely way, an embellishing of the seats and of the belts’supports. A very specific color that is also found on the hoop of the car.
All profits from the sale will be donated to the association Les Rois du Monde whith Richard Orlinski as the vice-president. The association works within hospitals to fulfill the dreams of sick children and allow them to escape their daily lives.
