Robo Crop

The windows of Paul Stuart on 16th Street and Fifth Avenue are occasionally transformed from retail display into art showcase. This week they feature a gaggle of incredibly witty and delightfully retro robots designed by Gordon Bennett of Bennett Robot Works. Made from found materials and mechanical parts, this crop of robots, each with names like Nick & Nora, Arvin, Hickok and Ms. Jello (above), are brilliantly crafted machine age marvels. Check out the website with items for sale, or just for a great eye-full. Posters are available here. And more robots are here.
