I saw them before and bought my pack back in Toronto when I visited Holt Renfrew’s 175th birthday, and I’m happy to see Areaware is now giving it a bigger audience. I’m talking about the balancing blocks by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings’ Fort Standard. ‘Their collaborative work is a fusion of craft-based backgrounds and a progressive design approach which pairs timeless materials with modern day process. Often using traditional methods of production in new ways, the designers have developed a unique form language rooted in simplicity and functionality. Their attention to detail, connections and materiality generate value through design in what Buntain and Collings describe as a “warm-contemporary” aesthetic.’ This video (by Part & Parcel) is amazing, just like the balancing blocks! Enjoy.
