In honor of Leica‘s 100th anniversary, ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi created a non-functional Leica camera, which is assembled from a flat acrylic sheet containing the detachable parts. Plans to distribute the assembly kit as part of a promotional run from Saatchi’s Brazilian office ultimately fell through, but Marcelo Ribeiro — a designer at the agency — has shared images and a video of the inventive project. The clip shows the assembly process, featuring the interlocking parts coming together to create an art object that pays fitting tribute to the artistry contained in each Leica camera. Check out the video below.

For Leica’s 100th anniversary, designer Marcelo Ribeiro under F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi was to create a DIY Leica camera as a gift to Brazilian store customers who had purchased any M camera during the year. This kit is truly DIY giving the lucky owner a taste of what it is like to make a real Leica camera. It would come with an acrylic sheet where you could just punch out pieces and combine it to the body one piece at a time. The kit never made it into production because the costs were too high, but it was a pretty cool idea, and it was unfortunate that Leica couldn’t pull it off. Check out the video about the DIY Leica camera that never became a reality.

To celebrate Leica’s 100th anniversary, advertising agency F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi created acrylic posters with detachable parts — just like an assembly kit — for Leica Store Brazil as a gift for customers who bought any M camera during the year, and wanted to have the taste of making their own. But due to high production costs, the project never came into reality. Thankfully, Marcelo Ribeiro got his hands on a prototype and posted a video showing just enough to make us want one.

Leica and Gagosian Art Gallery have come together to bring you a very limited edition of the Leica X2 camera. The camera itself is identical to the current Lecia X2 as far as functionality goes, except that its paint job is a little different, which features black paint splotches against a white leather grip. Only 100 of the cameras are going to be produced. Since there are only going to be a small quantity made, the price certainly reflects its rarity, coming in at $2,999.00. If you’re fan of either Leica or the Gagosian Art Gallery you can head over to the shop to buy one here.

Created by Leica for the influential Gagosian Gallery in New York City, the Leica X2 Gagosian Camera features a APS-C format 16.5 megapixels CMOS image sensor and an Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH lens. Quipped with a pop-up flash and other amenities, designers at Leica also perfected all the nuance, from instrumentation to software, so photographers can fine tune the camera to suit their needs. When asked about the partnership, gallery owner Larry Gagosian said, “Considering the many important photographers who have used Leica cameras over the years, we are thrilled to not only offer Leica products at Gagosian Shop but also to have the opportunity to create our own unique Leica Camera.” Roland Wolff, Vice President of Marketing for Leica Camera USA, added “The limited-edition Leica X2 Gagosian Camera continues Leica’s rich heritage in all technical aspects and function, married with an artistic flair reflective of Gagosian’s presence in the world of art.”
In sturdy metal construct decorated with an Expressionist style design, only 100 units will be made and available exclusively through Gagosian Shop on 976 Madison Avenue and its online store starting on December 12, 2013.
