Areaware Hanno Gorilla

These wonderful poseable wooden toys are from the fertile minds at the David Weeks Studio in New York and are made exclusively for Areaware. Each is crafted from sustainably harvested hardwood with powerful bungee cord muscles and is practically impervious to breakage. They are designed to be without period, to become an enduring classic that withstands many generations of play. Each toy has its own character and a name to suit in this case Hanno, the strong and curious Gorilla. Hanno takes his name from the valiant Greek explorer who first discovered gorillas 2500 years ago, mind you he did think the gorillas were just hairy people. So Hanno, strong and curious but not particularly bright.

David Weeks is an American product and industrial designer with a studio in New York City. Weeks designs lighting, furniture as well as clever, often humorous household objects and toys. Weeks lighting and furniture is often fluid and seductive containing contrapuntal elements of balance, movement and delightful asymmetry. Despite the beauty and desirability of his interior products Weeks would have to concede that he has become best known for a wooden anthropomorphic robot called cubebot whose popularity threatens to overwhelm civilisation and which has become the main purpose of pocket money everywhere. Weeks has also made a range of fabulous articulated wooden animals aimed more at the adult market and develops custom products for retail, restaurant and residential applications worldwide. Regardless though, of the size or prestige of the product, they all carry the Weeks Studio trademark commitment to peerless craftsmanship and design.

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.
