Areaware Contour Keyring

Bring a jangle of unconventionality to the previously pedestrian act of gathering and securing your keys. The Contour key ring closes neatly with a screw clasp in brass which you can, oh so fashionably, wear around your wrist or attach to your belt like a prison warden. Made from 10 gauge brass wire by Areaware and designed by the multi-talented Karl Zahn, the Contour is available in 2 shapes, drop and bend and in either all brass or black with brass detail. Go on, get a bunch of your keys together and go wild.

Designer: Karl Zahn for Areaware.
Material: Brass.
Size: Drop 10cm x 8cm. Bend 10cm x 5cm.

Karl Zahn was born in rural Vermont in 1981, he is a freelance product and furniture designer living in Greenpoint Brooklyn. His work with wood and natural materials is an extension of the teachings from his home and time spent playing in forests and wood shops. After completing his studies in Product Design at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2003, Zahn worked as an architectural fabricator in San Francisco. He also spent time in Copenhagen studying Danish furniture design. Zahn draws inspiration from the long history of Danish industrial craft, with its balanced function and form. Since relocating to Brooklyn in 2007, Zahn has set up his own design shop. A recurring theme in his work is “old technology.” Zahn believes that the pace of technology moves too quickly to fully exhaust all possibilities and is interested in examining and preserving “forgotten technologies” by repurposing them into contemporary lifestyles.

Areaware is a design and manufacturing company based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in the good ole US of A. They like to think of themselves as a producer of everyday objects that are functional and unusual but this doesn’t really come close to describing how singular they are. Working with an extraordinary roll call of innovative and visionary young designers Areaware are pushing the boundaries on product design creating thoughtful items that inspire an immediate emotional response. Critical to their success is a very healthy sense of humour which threads its way through everything they produce. This does not trivialise what they do but potentially transforms the prosaic into the poetic, galvanizing young and local talent in the process, and raising hopes of becoming a new voice for American design. Areaware believe quite rightly that the appreciation of beauty is central to human life itself and want to embody this principle in even the simplest of things.
