Fingers began as a one-off piece, made in 2003. In 2009, Nik worked with Laikingland to develop Fingers into a multiple, which has since been produced in three editions and three special editions. They have been shown in Shanghai, Dubai, Los Angeles, Basel, Milan, Copenhagen, Paris and London. Sir Paul Smith bought one of the first ten and later gave another to Sir Jonathan Ive of Apple. Kanye West included it in his Kanye University blog and was moved to comment '?'
