Who doesn’t know the iconic teak monkey by Kay Bojesen from 1951. ‘Hanno’ by David Weeks Studio connects this famous classic toy with the contemporary market of graffiti-culture action figures. Hanno’s 31 cm tall, powerful hardwood frame pops and locks into a myriad of poses. And, he’s a friend of the environment, made from sustainably harvested, new-growth beech wood.
