Areaware Balancing Blocks Multi

Build your own chaotic Stonehenge with these fantastic, Balancing Blocks. The multi-faceted blocks can be stacked one upon the other, vertically or horizontally, to create perfectly cantilevered sculptures that seem to defy Mister Newton's pesky laws of gravity. Designed by Fort Standard, for those wizards of odd over at Areaware in the good ole US of A, the blocks are cut from lumps of solid oak and then tumbled in water-based, lick friendly paint creating a lovely pre-handled appearance. Complete with a drawstring cotton bag for simple storage and conveyance the Balancing Blocks are pretty much guaranteed to divert attention away from the boring dinner party conversation and focus it on the fun break away group hovering over something increasingly interesting on the coffee table.

Dimensions: 10 various size blocks from 5.5 to 15cm.

Appearance: Multi coloured balancing blocks with worn edges.
Designer: Fort Standard for Areaware.
Material: Oak wood and water based paint.
Size: 10 various size blocks from 5.5 to 15cm.

Fort Standard is a contemporary design studio and manufacturer based in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Founder and designer Gregory Buntain explores the interplay of natural materials and modern production processes to create distinctive designs rooted in simplicity and functionality. Merging progressive design thinking with an obsessive approach to craft, Fort Standard’s lighting, furniture and home goods help transform everyday spaces into ideal living environments.

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.
