Designarium is the brainchild of Natas Kaupas. Limited-edition, single-production decks featuring original artwork from world renown, highly-respected artists.
This company is sponsoring and giving models to artists instead of skaters. Easch board is a kind of limited edition fine art print. It's a way of recognizing and celebrating skateboard culture, not just skateboarding itself. The first round of artists include Thomas Campbell, Shepard Fairey (OBEY), Lodown Magazine, and Page Imatani. Shepard, Lodown, and Paige have all done their versions of the classic Natas "Panther" graphics, a very cool and fun project. Designarium just felt like bringing something new and creative to the table.
