Bold, vibrant color is the main theme of Areaware’s new Spring 2015 collection. Besides expanding their color palette, they also began creating more products using stone, porcelain, glass, and wire. Each piece is purely functional but also with a touch of whimsy through color and fun shapes.
Bower designed the Stick-Up Sticks, which are three-dimensional magnets that jut out from your refrigerator.
The Bracelet Flask, by Julianne Ahn, means you can have the party on your arm that’s full of a shot’s worth of booze.
A gradient puzzle, designed by Bryce Wilner, has individual pieces that blend together into a larger transformation.
Their Minim Cards, designed by Joe Doucet, have been released in black.
Made from soapstone and marble, the Drink Rocks, by Runa Klock, come in organic shapes that were inspired by the designer’s childhood in Norway.
Daphna Laurens designed light, fun paper clips that act as decor as well as office stationary.
Continuing with the office theme, is a desk weight that’s a collaboration between Parsons and Areaware. Designed by Parsons senior, Daniel Martinez, Prism magnifies objects while refracting light on the other side.
The Grid Serving Planks, also by Daphna Laurens, come in small, medium, and large, and act as a cutting and serving piece. The smooth side is for chopping, and the checkered side acts as a fun serving platter.
