Surface and Soul

Products with purpose, patterned from Nick Cave’s iconic Soundsuits

SoundsuitShop was created to share the art of Nick Cave with a wider audience than his exhibitions can possibly reach. These simple, practical items transport Nick’s richly patterned, highly conceptual artworks into the realm of everyday life. The quality and ingenuity of every SoundsuitShop item make them easy to wear, share or simply enjoy. Expect every SoundsuitShop product to spark thought, conversation and even pure wonder. Each product has been carefully sourced and designed to out-delight other products in its category. As Nick's work evolves, so does SoundsuitShop’s selection. Product quantities will be limited to a single production run; we hate to disappoint, so please order early.

Nick Cave / Vision

As both artist and partner, Nick is the vision of all things "Soundsuit". He also spearheads the Graduate Program of Fashion Department at the School of The Art Institute of Chicago and is represented by Jack Shainman Gallery in New York. Nick is a uncatagorizable artist working between sculpture, installation, performance, video, designed object and fashion. His work is shown nationally and internationally and is very interested in using his work as a impetus for change in the community at large.

As partner and design director, Bob both designs and develops all SoundsuitShop products. He is also the founder and creative director of Faust, a cultural branding and communications studio in Chicago with clients such as the MASS MoCA, Denver Art Museum and Barney's. He has been recognized as a design leader by many prestigious publications and organizations and has recently served as development chair for AIGA, the professional association for design, and is currently a board member of the Riverside Arts Center as well as a member of the School of the Art Institute’s Fashion Council.
