Although Fendor-Bendor has a colorfoul history, the last 2 years have been almost exclusively black and white.
We like that and will go on with it. The first reason for this, is that we use an extra thick (= stable) plastic sheet that is not easily available in many colors. The other reason is that we like to use the black plastic, because it's made of 100% scrap plastic. So that's a residual material from another production process. In the future, we want all our plastics to be 100% recycled or from a residual material stream (now it's at least all 100% recycleable).
But we like red, and we know many of you do, too. So we decided to add the first color to our collections, since 2012. We've chosen the famous painting by Barnett Newman as the reference for the color. If you want to know more about this piece of art, you could read Pepe's and Rowan's answers to our little Instagram contest.
All in all, this all got us quite emojional. (We were inspired by another emojional outing: Ten Speed Hero's La Giraffe Sock's sale.)
Here's a little throwback to some of the first Fendor-Bendor prototypes ever made. November 2010. In the first production - still cut with a lasercutter at Protospace Utrecht - we offered the fendor in more colors than we could handle. By the way: in the background you can see a one-slice-pizza box by Remko Siemerink, co-inventor of the Fendor-Bendor.
