Superette: Nike Air 180 Billboard


One of many events taking place worldwide to celebrate nearly 30 years of Nike Air technology, Swiss-based artist Peter Kienzle (aka Superette) was one of four artists tasked to create billboards celebrating watershed moments in Nike design history for the launch of Berlin's Air Max 360 lab on 26 January 2006. Kienzle, having previously worked in Germany, represented the home country (the other artists were from Austria, Switzerland, and China) and interpreted the iconic Air 180. (Pictured above in situ and after the jump.) The ads first appeared throughout Berlin when the lab opened.
