“Foster” by Bennett Robot Works

For Christmas I received an amazing sculpture from my fiancée who apparently is some sort of gift-memory genius. We saw a few of Gordon Bennett’s robot sculptures at the Wired pop-up store in Soho and she did some pretty amazing detective work to get one. This robot is named Foster and comes from the Bennett Robot Works:

Foster Wheeler

From the website:

These sculptures, created by Gordon Bennett are made from a mixture of found objects which are both old and new. The parts are found in various places including garbage dumps, basements, construction sites, and garage sales. They are inspired by Norman Bel Geddes and Raymond Loewy whose visions of the “Modern Age” helped shape the industrial designs of the 40’s and 50’s. The materials are wood, metal, bakelite, glass, plastic, rubber and paint. Each robot is a unique, one-of-a-kind sculpture and receives its own numbered metal tag as proof it’s an authentic Bennet Robot Works robot.

Foster is #110. My fiancée buys me wonderful gifts (thank you!).
