Areaware: Playtime never looked so good

Areaware believe the best design evokes good feelings, and think everyday objects should be as fun as they are functional. We’d like to introduce to you the latest from the collection along with some old favourites!

Palimals : eco-friendly fun

Palimals are a colourful pack of wooden animals, designed by children’s book author and illustrator Rilla Alexander. Celebrating connection and friendship.

Bean Chalks : but are they magic?

These are not magic beans, but the chalk masterpieces you create with them will look like straight-up wizardry. Thanks to their curly and interlocking shape, you can double them up to draw with two of its twelve colours at once. Or, if you’re more of a minimalist, keep it simple with a single bean. On second thought, maybe they are kinda magical?
