This collection of sculptures are designed by Linnea Gits and Peter Dunham, the founders of the Chicago design firm called Uusi and are available exclusively from DWR.   The Moderne Wood animals are made from American black walnut and white oak veneer and are finished with nontoxic, odorless mineral oil.  These woods were chosen for their striking grain and because they are materials that have a rich history in the production of American-made objects.  Careful attention is paid to the direction in which the wood grain falls across the form of each animal, making each sculpture a unique piece.  Very simple assembly is required; the animals are comprised of a few pieces that need to be slotted together.
