Dutch Designer Floris Hovers (1976) designed this series of minimalist wooden animals for the Dutch toy brand Ikonic Toys, and we are offering it in Canada for the very first time. The series includes thirteen abstracted but instantly recognizable animals in the artist's signature style. The shapes of the animals are pared down to the absolute essentials, but each one is bursting with character and charm. Children and adults alike will fall instantly in love with these little works of art.
