Daniel Arsham owns a Porsche 356 Speedster, and over a two-year period, he stripped it to its barest, time-worn essence. Deeply influenced by Japanese culture and the concept of wabi-sabi – finding beauty in transience and imperfection – Arsham also upholstered the vehicle with indigo-dyed fabrics featuring boro patchwork sashiko-stitched lines. Our version of the “Bonsai” Speedster faithfully replicates the welding lines and weathered aesthetic Arsham created, including the vintage “BONSA1” license plate.
