Based in New York City, Areaware produces eclectic decorative objects created by America’s top designers and sells them at prices that won’t break your (Harry Allen-designed, resin-and-marble piggy) bank. “We believe that appreciation for beauty is central to what it means to be alive,” the company says on its website, “and want to embody this principle in even the simplest things.” Founded in 2005, Areaware has assembled an impressive roster of talented designers who create fun, functional items ranging from retro-meets-modern alarm clocks (Jonas Damon) to lighting (Hulger & Samuel Wilkinson’s plumen series, Ross Menuez’ Tierdrop lamp) and wooden robots and toys (David Weeks’ Cubebots, Karl Zahn’s Croc Piles). As part of its mission, Areaware nurtures the next generation of innovators — providing many new designers with their first commercial outlet.
