Sailing from Carthage and along the western coast of Africa around 500 B.C., Hanno the Navigator had the first recorded encounter with gorillas. The Areaware David Weeks Hanno the Gorilla is named for this intrepid explorer, and is just as strong and curious. His durable beech wood limbs and elastic-band muscles make him flexible and nearly impervious to breakage.
Areaware reinvents the everyday object with a more eccentric and absurdist twist, driven by a fascination about forward thinking technologies and original expression. A New York-based company, Areaware is dedicated to creating not just useful design accessories, but poetic objects that inspire an emotional response.
The Hanno the Gorilla is available with the following:
- Made of sustainably harvested beech wood
- Elastic-band muscles
- 2009 GOOD DESIGN award-winner
- Designed by David Weeks
- Item: Height 12", Width 6.5", Depth 3.5"
