Areaware is a gift and home accessories brand based in Brooklyn, NY and Columbus, OH. They're a small team of 24 people dedicated to producing the best of new design and work with independent designers to bring their ideas to life. The team oversees all aspects of bringing a product to market, including creative direction, product development, sourcing, marketing, sales and distribution. And, at the core of it all, they value design integrity, and collaborate closely with designers to realize their vision while also responding to consumer needs and market forces. 

The Optic Table Tiles were designed by Bower exclusively for Areaware.

Bower is a contemporary design studio based in New York City founded by Danny Giannella and Tammer Hijazi in 2013. Through a free experimental design process they bring unique and unexpected objects into people's lives. Tammer and Danny love finding intriguing characteristics in anything from plants and animals, to toys from their childhood and dreaming up completely different functional applications for them, often ending up with delightfully surprising results. This process is their happy place, experimenting and exploring a detail that has caught their interest without being sure how it will manifest itself in the end. The spirit of discovery in Danny and Tammer's process lives though their objects and is felt when people engage with a Bower design. Bower was an honoree from Sight Unseen's 2014 American Design Hot List.
