• A puzzle, action figure, robot and transformer - all in one
• Designed by David Weeks for Areaware
• Cubebot is an eco-friendly plaything
Cubebot is a wooden robot puzzle inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles. The Cubebot is a non-traditional take on the toy robot. Cubebots's powerful hardwood frame can hold dozens poses, and his elastic-band muscles and durable wood limbs make him impervious to breakage. When it's time for him to rest, he folds into a perfect cube. An enduring classic that will withstand generations of play. Perfect game for children up to 3 years old.
Material: Crafted in beech wood

Who is David Weeks?
David Weeks was educated in Providence, where he received his BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design. Weeks founded his namesake studio in DUMBO in 1996 as an umbrella for his diverse interests, ranging from metal fabrication techniques to contemporary toy culture. Brooklyn’s unique amalgam of the industrial and the artisanal informed Weeks’ sensibility, and his work in turn helped define the independent design movement that took root there: one that championed the maker and whetted contemporary styling and old-school craftsmanship. Over the past two decades, his product line has evolved from a core grouping of elemental lighting fixtures to a broader collection of upholstered seating, side tables, and sculptural objects with a simpatico sense of materiality and detailing.
