Areaware is a New York City based producer of everyday objects that are functional and unusual. Their goal is to create thoughtful products that inspire an emotional response. The practice as a whole has a good sense of humour and their objects are poetic. "We believe that appreciation for beauty is central to what it means to be alive and want to embody this principle in even the simplest things". Areaware is a collaborative concept where hundreds of designers participate in creating new objects.
The Areaware Bend Keyring was designed by Karl Zahn of Vermont. After studying Product Design at the Rhode Island School of Design, Zahn worked as an architectural fabricator in San Francisco. The curved, black plated brass ring features a simple screw closure which simplifies the process of getting your keys together.
