Omi: A new 3D Platform

Inspired by Chinese opera and Japanese Oni masks, Omi takes a traditional form and infuses it with a designer toy aesthetic. Omi’s distinct shape comes adorned with unique ears and accessories. Flip Omi upside down or sideways to create a multitude of design possibilities.

Omi blurs the line between art and toys. Packaged with a frame and a removable base, collectors can hang Omi on the wall or display it on a shelf. As a 3D hanging art piece, Omi eliminates the clutter of platform toys.

Multiples of the same design are the bane of blind box collecting. The versatility of the Omi platform provides many display options, so doubles are welcome!

Do-It-Yourself Omis come packaged with an Omi, an Omi Peg, and an Omi Frame with removable base. Attach the Omi to the clear acrylic frame via the Omi Peg to either hang on your wall or display on a flat surface. Omis can also be connected to each other to create new and exciting shapes. The DIY Omi is blind box assortment, so you can either pull a Monkey, Cat, Bear, or Devil. The matte white finish is perfect for customizing with acrylics, aerosol, paint markers, or anything your creativity desires.

This is my first of 10 Omi’s. Painted with Acrylics and detailed in pen and ink. If you are interested in customizing toys, but love faces as I do, this is really a great platform. Takes paint and ink like a champ. Looks fantastic on the acrylic frame.
