Permafrost wooden toys, Hanno animal figures and Font Alphabet Puzzle
Permafrost wooden toys
The four-man design team at Permafrost unveiled this set of modern-day industrial icons, which honour traditional Nordic craftsmanship. Bold primary colours and understated Nordic design are hallmarks of the set of three, called Offshore (pictured), Shipping, and Archipelago.
Hanno animal figures
Inspired by the gorilla-discovering Greek voyager who explored Africa 2,500 years ago, his namesake Hanno is described as being brave, strong, and curious. These well-crafted beechwood toys are extremely durable and can be moved and positioned without fear of breaking.
Font Alphabet Puzzle
Handmade in Italy with certified local wood, this puzzle matches each letter to the corresponding first letter of a font, from the widely-used Helvetica Black, and Times New Roman, to lesser-known fonts such as Quattrocento Sans, and Zantroke. The lacquered wood comes in a variety of colours and makes a striking alternative to a traditional alphabet game.
