The Excellently Outstanding Design of Harry Allen’s ‘Pickup’ Bowl

Product description via Areaware via Anwar: Designer: Harry Allen. Material: Resin and Marble Dimensions: 5 x 12 x 6 inches. “Harry Allen loves trucks. His immaculately restored 1964 Willys Jeep was recently featured in the New York Times, but it was his fond memories of playing in the dirt that lead him to the idea of “Pickup”. The beauty of any pickup truck is its utilitarian aesthetic – four strong wheels and the capacity to haul cargo. Harry had function on his mind as he cast a toy truck and turned it into a catch-all bowl. As with all REALITY products, it is the material transformation that completes the idea. “Pickup” is functional art for the home.” To purchase, please click HERE.
