We’re huge fans of David Week‘s Cubebot collection for Areaware. This contemporary take on the traditional plastic robot toy was inspired by the Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, with elastic-band muscles that lets him hold many poses and fold into a perfect compact cube when playtime is over.
We’ve got a lot of kids at heart here, and several Lumens staffers have one of these fellas perched on their desks (see here, here and here for some fun we had). So you can imagine how excited we were to see this super-sized Cubebot at MOST Salone at the National Museum of Science & Technology in Milan this week. At 20 times the size of the desktop-friendly version and made from Quinze & Milan
‘s QM FOAM, this ginormous Cubebot is making his debut at Tom Dixon’s MOST Salone during Milan Design Week, and he looks photo-op ready for those attending the fair.
