In an exciting collaboration, one of Kobi & Teal's designers, Plaey Workshop, have teamed up with English synth-pop band Hot Chip, to make a Record Dolly in celebration of Hot Chip’s new album release ‘A Bath Full of Ecstasy’.
With this collaboration, Plaey’s Record Dolly design is flooded with the colourful album artwork by Jeremy Deller and Fraser Muggeridge Studio. Simple, playful and fun - the dolly is designed to be a companion to your record collection, housing a selection of approx 40 favourite and ‘currently listening to’ records.
There will be an initial release of 30 limited edition Hot Chip X Plaey Record Dolly’s to pre-order through the Plaey Workshop webshop www.plaey.co.uk/shop – Dolly’s will be produced in November.
Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip said - “Matt Kelly at Plaey Workshop got in touch via Instagram, with a great proposal: a record dolly taking inspiration partly from the classic Isokon Penguin Donkey, and partly from your everyday record collector’s need to store, access and display their vinyl, and he set about making something simple, functional, pleasing and unique looking. Housed in the Jeremy Deller and Fraser Muggeridge Studioadorned artwork from our latest album, ‘A Bath Full of Ecstasy’, we hope you will all enjoy ‘A Dolly Full of Records to See!’ ”
Matt Kelly from Plaey Workshop said - “Hot Chip are dream collaborators to launch our Record Dolly with. Through shared aesthetics and love of colour it was a perfect fit. We already have some more Hot Chip related collaborators in mind for future Dolly designs - so I hope this will be the start of a beautiful creative process. The Dolly design takes cues from classic mid-century designs such as the Penguin Donkey while adding Plaey’s sense of purpose, play and personality.
PREVIEW the Hot Chip x Plaey Dolly at our Design Junction stand in London, along with the launch of Plaey’s simple ply & coloured valchromat versions.
