Bien Conectao - 'Illmatic' Domino Table

Mandean Radio

Nas' Illmatic turned 20 on April 19th. To celebrate, we collaboed with the good people over at Bien Conectao with concepts and art for a custom handmade Illmatic-themed domino table. 

We removed all the text from the original double-exposed album cover, leaving the natural look and feel of the iconic image of a young Nas laid over the Queensbridge Houses. 

Simplicity was the key - all while striking a chord with anyone who owned and loved Illmatic on vinyl and/or cassette tape. We added special detailing: the cupholders are the original Columbia Records 12" vinyl sticker, and the racks are the side bindings of the original cassette tape jacket. 

Seethrumoney did his thing with the painting - creating the record-like appearance that plays off the cupholder art. HECHO A MANO UP IN HERE.

Nasty Nas in your area. Causin mass hysteria.
