Welcome to the weird, wild and wide world of Areaware.
We say “wide” because Areaware make so many fascinating objects, we’re not sure which category to place them in. This New York-based studio of design aims to make your home objects as unusual as possible, while still retaining their useful factor – and get a laugh or jolt of surprise from you along the way.
It’s time to go back to the old days, when parents went to the wood carver to have a gift made for their child, and entertainment coincided with imagination. With Areaware’s Wooden Animals collection, those times are just a skip and a hop away.
Meet Hanno the Wooden Gorilla, the almighty strong and courageous one of the bunch. Like Hanno the Greek voyager who discovered gorillas in the 6th century, he has an inquisitive and curious nature. With wooden limbs and strong elastic band muscles to let him be posed in dozens of ways, Hanno will withstand generations of play, always remaining a solid classic.
Hanno the Wooden Rhino features:
- Designed in the USA by David Weeks.
- Made from solid beech wood, with strong elastic band joints.
- Such strong joints allow Hanno to hold dozens of different poses.
- Presented in an Areaware gift box.
Dimensions: 30cm (h) x 19cm (w) x 8cm (d).
