TheGoodLife! Presents: Jeff Koons x Jake Burton “The Philosopher” Release

jacob-breinholt-nyc2016-2944This past week we had the great honor of producing an evening of celebration for an epic partnership between two icons: Jeff Koons and Jake Burton. In their first ever collaborative project, the duo created “The Philosopher,” an extremely limited run of 50 hand numbered snowboards inspired by Plato and the “transcendant” nature of snowboarding. Snowboard enthusiasts and art connoisseurs alike vied for the chance to purchase one of the $5,000 pieces with 100% proceeds going to Burton’s CHILL organization, for a night that was unlike many others in the snowboard world. Take a look in photos by Jacob Breinholt below.
