Areaware Snake Blocks

What in all creation is this? A semaphoring slow-worm? A contortionist’s walking stick? A chin stroking piece of shelf art? Absolutely. It’s all of these things and more. Oh yes it is. I’ve got one and so myriad is its purpose that I have as yet to find a use for it. But who cares? One day it will come to me and I may fashion it into a necessary tourniquet, or a less than efficient draught excluder or perhaps I will just sit and stare at, willing it to show me the meaning of my contrapuntal existence. It’s not for something specific, it’s not a lemon squeezer, it’s a bendy snake-like bunch of colourful blocks on the very verge of becoming. Anything. Like a lot of the lovely stuff we sell, it just is. And that is enough.

Clara von Zweigbergk, born in Stockholm, studied graphic design and illustration at Beckmans School of Design, Stockholm, and at Art Centre College of Design, Pasadena, USA. She has worked as a graphic designer with advertising agencies and designers in Stockholm, Los Angeles and Milano. After her studies she founded ­Rivieran Design Studio, with two partners, a multi disciplinary agency spawning many successful collaborations within fashion, illustration, architecture, furniture, product, and graphic design. After four years of employment as a senior graphic designer at Lissoni Associati in Milano, with clients such as Boffi, Armani and Alessi, she started a studio in Stockholm. She currently pursues her great interest in paper, colour, typography and form through projects ranging from corporate identities, photos art direction, packaging and a growing series of products.

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.
