SIT ON BILLIONS is inspired by the original SIT ON MILLIONS art collection of artist Piet Van.
During the banking crisis in 2008, the artist would recreate the banks losses with huge money sculptures filled with soft money benches each representing millions of dollars or euros on which people could sit on, preferably in front of the banks. Later artist Jonas G. Soto obtained the rights to recreate the project under the name SIT ON BILLIONS for a limited fictional value of $1,000,000,000,000.
' The skill and ingenuity with which the artist had created these works of art was mind-blowing. His vision inspired me to further develop the concept. Instead of working with traditional fabrics for upholstering furniture, we developed an innovative production method to create a unique product. ' - Jonas G. Soto.
BENJ & SOTO's products are seamless, durable and handmade in Belgium.
