This is not a toy. That’s right, keep telling yourself that as you pose Hanno in every which way but loose. That’s because Hanno—made from sustainably harvested new-growth beech wood—boasts durable wood limbs that are connected by elastic-band muscles. Hanno cannot fly and might be afraid of heights. Yet, like Hanno the Navigator, the Greek voyager who discovered gorillas 2,500 years ago, this Hanno the Gorilla is brave, brawny, and curious. He is also the first in a series of wooden creatures by David Weeks. Be it striking lights to offbeat tabletop accessories, the New York designer reframes elementary ideas into elegant essentials.
Got it? It’s not a toy. Keep telling yourself that. Of course, the six year old next to you can show you differently... because HANNO IS A TOY FOR KIDS OF ALL AGES!
