This fabulous Pickup Truck is designed by Harry Allen for Areaware. Harry specialises in taking moulds of ordinary items then making reproductions in exotic materials and using them in unusual ways. Here a mid 20th century American toy truck is recast as a 21st century ornament and bowl. Perfect for hauling keys, nick nacks, sweets or nothing at all, it is this change of use that renders it functional art. Areaware is a design company based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They like to think of themselves as adding poetry to everyday objects so that they evoke an emotional response, usually humour. They work with young and local designers and strive to become a new voice for American design by finding the beauty in simple things.
